OAKLAND — This -N- That Grocery is set to open on Friday, Feb. 28, at the Brodak Plaza in Oakland.
The store is a locally owned and operated discount store offering a wide variety of grocery items, including meats and dairy.
Owners Anthony Brodak and Susanna Pannell are currently engaged to be married and have two children, 4-year-old son Ivan and 1-year-old daughter Jade.
“We want to have things priced lower so people can afford to grocery shop,” Pannell said. “We are a family of four, and going to the grocery store isn’t always fun when you see the ending cost. So we just want to be affordable so people don’t have to worry about their wants opposed to what they need. They can still get what they want here at an affordable price.”
She noted that the main products will be grocery items, but other odds and ends will be available, such as paper products and some medicines.
“We’re going to have a lot of different items such as steaks, chicken — everything basically that you could want in freezer food,” she said. “We just got signed up yesterday with a dairy person, so we’re going to have cheeses, sour creams and yogurts.”
