First Hill Grocery open Mon-Fri 6:30am to 9pm, Sat-Sun 8am to 9pm

What’s in a Name? A Sense of Place!

Most people call us Stockbox, but there is so much more to our name. Our official company name is Stockbox Neighborhood Grocery. And there is a very specific reason for that… we’re all about the neighborhood and recognizing its importance to our existence. So much, in fact, that every store we open gets named after the place it resides. Our current store is Stockbox South Park Grocery; our next store is Stockbox First Hill Grocery. The communities in which we operate are extremely important to us for a number of reasons.
For starters, it’s where we call home… literally! Our amazing store staff live right in the neighborhood, so you know that the person who’s helping you find that lactose-free milk isn’t just doing a job, they’re caring for their friends and neighbors.
Our neighborhood focus has been a blessing in too many ways to count; the latest from a fabulous team of volunteers from Boston College (Sam Gervase, Rachel Rudder and Haley Farrell).
Community Board - Sam Rachel and HaleyThey’ve been working over the last month to help us develop a community space for our South Park grocery that pays homage to the history of the neighborhood; recognizes the other businesses and organizations that make it a wonderful place to live and work; and provides a connection to food and community. We’ll be changing out the stories monthly, so stop by to check out this month’s featured organization, South Park Arts; catch a glimpse of the old South Park Fire Station; or pickup one of this week’s featured recipes, like Penne with Red Peppers and Kale.
Sam, Rachel and Haley are heading home, but we greatly appreciate their hard work and excitement for helping to evolve Stockbox South Park Grocery and honoring the neighborhood our first store calls home.
