Saturday, people had the chance to ask questions about the possibility of a grocery store coming to north Tulsa.
A veteran-owned business is working to get a Save-A-Lot to the area.
The grocery store would not only bring fresh product to a food desert but is also planning on employing dozens.
“Most of our stores employ about 25 employees right off, and they are all usually within a mile or two from the community in which the store serves,” said Marcus Scarborough of Honor Capital.
The business owners haven't nailed down a spot but they've been looking at locations in north Tulsa around MLK and Peoria.
They project is set to begin next year.
