Next Cash Mob — MADIA’S!!!

The first Love Geneva CASH MOB for 2013 is…

What is a CASH MOB? When a group of people assemble at a local business and buy items to support that business and the overall community.

Madia’s is a Geneva institution, the last locally-owned full-service grocery store in the area. We couldn’t think of a better location for the first CASH MOB of 2013 (don’t worry, downtown! We’ll be returning soon enough). So come on down this Saturday, Jan. 19th between 11 am – 1 pm. Visit the best butcher shop in town, pick up some groceries, enjoy one of the last neighborhood grocery stores in the region, and spread some Geneva love! See you there!!!

  1. My father, Dan, did the family grocery shopping back in the day, and the only place he would shop is Madia’s. My mother, Marge, was involved in the terrible accident the day the fire truck slammed into the building, killing one. She was exiting when the truck hit and was missed by just inches. She was very shook up. When I returned to Geneva after 20+ years away, I struck up a conversation with Bernie regarding “the old days.” He allowed me to take home his scrap book, loaded with b/w pictures of the “Big M.” Bernie and I used to share tips on how to make sauce, etc. I miss Bernie. I still shop there today and say “Hi” to Soapy and Steve and Co. and it always feels like home. It still has that neighborhood grocery store feel to it, because that’s what it still is. Great choice. I’ll be there for the Cash Mob, but I’d probably be there anyway. 🙂

  2. I know there are vegetarians and vegans among us, but meat has been a real niche for these small stores. Penn Yan has Morgan’s – slightly smaller than Madia’s, but they have real meat cutters who can give you exactly what you want, better than the larger competition. (Okay, there’s not much competition in PY.) Madia’s embodies the successful Geneva business: offer what the large stores can’t or won’t, know your customer, and stay the course.
