New Orleans Peace Building & Economic Justice Project
Effort underway to re-open Circle Food Store
Fresh bell peppers, Eater candy and school uniforms are synonymous with the iconic and now shuttered Circle Food Store which sits at the corner of N. Claiborne and St. Bernard Avenues. For 87 years the Circle store has served as one stop shopping experience for the 7th Ward neighborhood. It was also the only Black owned grocery in New Orleans.
