It’s great to see country stars step up to help others in need. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic began, Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly opened “The Store,” a free grocery store in Nashville for those in need. Now they’re helping more people than ever and have expanded their services.
Brad says, “We are growing 95% a week. We are three times of what we planned on feeding right now in what our trajectory would be. Of all the strange timing, we opened a grocery store for people who lose their jobs just when everybody is losing their jobs.”
The store’s business model quickly changed from an in-store experience to a delivery service. Now they also serve anyone over 80 regardless of financial need.
