Zero-waste Glass Pantry opens doors on Tuesday

The Glass Pantry, a zero-waste grocery store at 1039 S. 5th St. in Walker's Point, will open for in-store shopping on Tuesday, June 30. The hours are Tuesday-Friday from noon to 5 p.m.

The Glass Pantry offers almost 100 percent organic items such as dry goods like beans, spices, nuts, pasta, rice, coffee beans (from Anodyne coffee) and tea (from Rishi Tea); liquids such as oils and vinegar; cleaning supplies like detergents, soaps; personal care products including body wash, shampoo, toothbrushes, tooth powder and more.

Customers can bring their own clean containers and bags or use all-recycled packaging supplied by the store. "If you don't want to lug your containers out right now, no biggie! We have tons of sanitized jars or paper bags to fill," says owner Jenna Meier.

The Glass pantry's procedures will be modified for health and safety. Per city regulations, customers cannot fill their own containers at self service / bulk stations, but employees can.

"So come in, bring clean containers if you want to, and we will fill them up for you while you browse, have a cup of coffee, feed your dog or whatever," says Meier.

Masks are also required.

The Glass Pantry will continue to offer free delivery and curbside pickup. Customers place their order online by noon and pick it up in store anytime during business hours the next day.
