Stop The Economic Violence in Chatham ! Target Store Refuse To Stock Reggios Pizza
The Target store located at 8560 S. Cottage Grove in Chgo, IL. sells pizza but will not stock and sell Reggio’s pizza which is produced by Blacks and is the only wholesale Black owned Pizza Company in the world. Many people are organizing to not shop there until they stock Reggio’s pizza. We are asking for everyone’s cooperation. Let the owner know that we will not do any more shopping there until they stock Reggio’s pizza.
Mr. John Clark owner of Reggio’s Pizza has gotten many honors for having one of the best Pizzas on the market.
We feel it is wrong for outsiders to come into our community and not stock the goods that we produce. We are asking all those who live in the Black community to not shop at any target stores until they stock Reggios Pizza. We must stop spending our money with any business that refuse to stock goods that are produced by the business owners who live in the community. For more information Call Dr. Webb Evans 773-343-7677 or Min. Rahim 773-846-3091

In Chicago's Chatham community a legendary Black owned business like Reggio's Pizza could employ hundreds of community youth from the profits that could come from a major corporate store like Target who refuses to put Reggio's Pizza on their store shelves which blatantly violates the very essence of Dr. Martin Luther King's community economic program "Operation Breadbasket" (later a PUSH Economic Covenant Program) that says a major corporation should NOT be supported by community consumer spending dollars if that corporation like Target refuses to engage in a financial benefits agreements with the local businesses in that core community. And so millions of urban radio listeners tonight could deal with this economic violence and challenge Target and others that is economically violence to sit in the heart of a Black community with double digit unemployment and make profits while blatantly contributing to the violence when hundreds of our youth could be working legal jobs when successful Black products like Reggio's are not on the shelves versus these youth and others forced back into battling over illegal street economies.
