The cooperative, which has 200 Indianapolis households as its members,Pogue plans to renovate the 3,000-square-foot former Lane TV building into Pogue’s Run Grocer. The store, set to open in October, will support local growers while providing local, fresh and organic food to a neighborhood that does not have a full-line grocery store. Members of the cooperative will receive discounts and other benefits, but the store also will be open to the public.
