With the holidays just around the corner, Krombholz Jewelers is gearing up for their holiday shopping event November 26 through December 11. During open shopping hours on these days, you’ll be able to fill out your wishlist and enjoy special holiday pricing.
“When you fill out your wishlist, you’ll receive a $50 gift certificate as well as raffle tickets for a chance to win prizes from other Montgomery businesses,” says Krombholz Jewelers Marketing Manager, Kirtley Krombholz.
Krombholz Jewelers will also donate a portion of the proceeds from the holiday event to Meiser’s Market, a social enterprise grocery store. "You may also purchase additional raffle tickets with all proceeds going to this vital organization," says Krombholz.
Meiser’s Market began as Meiser's Parkview Market which served shoppers in Lower Price Hill in the 1940s. They were known for the sense of community and care that the family brought to their shopping experience, hiring local neighbors who would check in on them as they shopped and who knew their favorite purchases, and providing an abundance of fresh, nutritious foods.
So, when the Meiser family announced their retirement in 2017, neighbors took up the charge to build a community-led social enterprise by the people, and for the people. They surveyed each other about how a new market could look and created a vision, then partnered with Price Hill Will to begin renovations as a landlord for the old grocery while they created Your Store of the Queen City to incubate fundraising and operations for a replacement store. They decided to keep the name of Meiser's in honor of the family's brand and legacy, one that demonstrated the possibility of community-connectedness through a loving and neighborly business.
Meiser’s Market will carry a range of products, including fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, dairy, bulk dry goods, spices, pantry staples, and foods. For the busy shopper, there will also be a small assortment of home goods, including personal and baby care, paper and cleaning products, and toiletries. Just as exciting, there will be a line of convenient, fresh, hyper-locally sourced prepared foods available on a grab-n-go basis.
Your Store of the Queen City is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and your donations will help employ Lower Price Hill community members and fuel the Meiser's Green Giveaways free grocery program. Donations can be made online at www.yourstoreqc.org/donate or by mailing a check to our administrative offices "Your Store of the Queen City" 2110 Saint Michael Street Cincinnati, OH 45204.
