LAS VEGAS -- Green Valley Grocery is making an investment in its hometown.
The Las Vegas-based retailer contributed to the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance's (LVGEA) "Engage Southern Nevada" investment campaign. The program launched in fall 2013 and is a three-year effort to raise $7.5 million for regional economic development.
The Engage Southern Nevada effort, strategic budget and the LVGEA Strategic Plan were released this past fall after a multi-year effort to reform the regional economic development systems in southern Nevada.
Since its reformation in 2012, the LVGEA has brought on new leadership, greatly enhanced the size of its team and developed partnerships in the southern Nevada region.
Green Valley Grocery joins other notable investors including Aerotek, Barclaycard US, CB Richard Ellis, Coldwell Banker Premier Realty, EastWest Bank, Holland & Hart LLP, Cox Communications, Knutek MD, Nevada State Bank, Realty Executives of Nevada, and Southern Nevada Home Builders Association.
"Green Valley Grocery is another example of corporate leadership in our community," said Terrence Thornton, LVGEA's director of investor services and development. "This investment reinforces the importance of what we're doing at the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance. Our success is catching on in the region, and we're proud to have Green Valley Grocery join our growing list of investors."
Green Valley Grocery has 52 locations throughout southern Nevada.
