    RERUN: The Only Remaining Grocery Store in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward

    RERUN: The Only Remaining Grocery Store in New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward

    In 2014, Burnell Cotlon spent his life savings to open the only fresh grocery store in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. When the pandemic put many in his community out of work, he began allowing customers to take groceries on credit. Within a month, he’d opened tabs for more than 60 customers who could no longer afford to buy food.
    Cotlon, an Army veteran who lived in a FEMA trailer for three years after Hurricane Katrina, missed mortgage payments on his own house as his store quickly lost revenue, but he continued to offer lines of credit and even gave away food to customers.  
    Find out more about his inspiring story and how he is an inspiration to so many.
