HRN Community Sessions
Bi-Rite Divisadero Opens!
Bi-Rite Divisadero Opens March 13th! Tune in for a special interview as Mariana Cotlear chats with store manager Patrick Mills about the opening and the operation at Bi-Rite at large. Find out how they staffed so quickly, and re-imagined the new space to make room for tons of improvements for grocery shoppers. Get a little bit of background on the Bi-Rite family of businesses and hear all about the brand-spankin' new spot! This program was sponsored by Hearst Ranch."What has it taken to get here? It takes a village - it really does. there are now 65 people working at the new location and we hired them all in 3 1/2 weeks!" [2:30]
"We want people to be able to walk to the store and shop 4-5 times a week in smaller batches rather than 1 big shopping session at a big grocery store." [5:00]
