Open Harvest Co-op Grocery to move to Lincoln’s Telegraph District

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Open Harvest Co-op Grocery has signed a lease to rent a single-story retail space offering 10,000 square feet in the Telegraph District near 21st and L Streets.

The Telegraph District is undergoing a revitalization effort, including adding housing, dining and retail to the area that already houses Allo Communications, The Mill Coffee and Tea and Subway.

Open Harvest will function as the full-service grocer in the area for residents to find local, healthy and fresh foods.

The move will allow the community-owned co-op to expand to include some frequently requested amenities, like beer and wine sales, increased parking and walking and biking accessibility, according to Marketing Coordinator Jonathan Sands.

Officials say the store should move in by fall of 2023.

A campaign to fund the move was started in April and has raised over $460,000 of its $1 million goal for this year.

On Friday, Open Harvest will launch Phase II of its campaign at a party hosted by Zipline Brewing Co. There will be live music, food and a market featuring local vendors.

Head to Zipline’s west Lincoln location at 6 p.m. to support the co-op’s relocation.

Donations to Open Harvest will be tax-deductible, thanks to the Lincoln Community Foundation’s sponsorship.
