A new vegan grocery store is planning to open its doors on the Lower East Side.
An idea for a one-stop shop for vegan produce along with household items and toiletries has been conceived by Eric Hopf. Vegan Bodega is seeking funding on IndieGoGo‘s site, with a goal of $15,000. The money will be used for securing the space, buying shelves, a computer system and the first order of goods for the opening. In return for contributions, Hopf is offering a selection of perks depending on generosity, including money off orders, freebies and invitations to the opening party.
