The doors have been for a while at the Honest Weight Food Co-op’s new location at 100 Watervliet Avenue in Albany, but their official grand opening celebration will take place from 11am-5pm on Thursday (August 8).

There will be kids’ activities (face painting, hula hooping and more) as well as giveaways and raffles throughout the day.
