Anabel’s Grocery Awaits Approval From President Garrett

Anabel’s Grocery, the proposed student-run grocery store in Anabel Taylor Hall, received provisional approval from the Cornell Community Coordinating Committee last week. Following a Student Assembly meeting on Nov. 6, during which the assembly approved a resolution to provide the store with $320,000 in funding from the Students Helping Students Grant Endowment, representatives of Anabel’s Grocery met with the Cornell Community Coordinating Committee to discuss further steps, according to Joel Malina, vice president for university relations. “The Committee — whose charge, in part, focuses on Cornell’s sales activity policy and how it might affect off-campus interests — gave the President’s Office its provisional approval of the proposal,” Malina said. At the receipt of the committee’s approval, President Elizabeth Garrett expressed her plans to address the issue.
