The article deals with the efforts of the supermarket industry in the U.S. to serve the urban neighborhoods. Challenges of inner city retailing and making an effort to entice food retailers are the two main reasons why the industry decided to serve the urban neighborhoods. Another reason is the assistance given by the U.S. government and nonprofit organizations to supermarkets willing to open stores in inner cities. INSET: Family Dollar goes downtown.
