MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee's Bronzeville neighborhood is set to welcome a new grocery store.

A Pete's Fruit Market will open in spring at MLK Drive and North.

For years, the community has pushed back against efforts to open a Dollar Store at the location.

On Thursday, February 9th, a job information event was held for anyone interested in working at the new store. Community members showed up with resumes in hand for short interviews with store managers.

Pete's Fruit Market will hire 30 full-time employees.
