Socialist Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson Wants to Open Taxpayer-Funded City-Owned Grocery Stores
The mayor said in a statement:

All Chicagoans deserve to live near convenient, affordable, healthy grocery options. We know access to grocery stores is already a challenge for many residents, especially on the South and West sides. A better, stronger, safer future is one where our youth and our communities have access to the tools and resources they need to thrive. My administration is committed to advancing innovative, whole-of-government approaches to address these inequities.

Sounds kind of socialist, doesn’t it?

All citizens will be allowed to shoplift $900 per week from these stores before they'll get fined $25 for exceeding this limit.

Funny that, state owned supermarkets.

Exactly where many predicted this bullshit was going when they destroy the supply chain and drive companies out of cities and out of business.

Government control of food, along with money so they can control the peasants.

Right out of Stalin’s playbook

Only at first, then they’ll switch to bugs.

Let’s not forget, the end goal for them is getting peasants on a bug diet

Aren't they just trying to eliminate the problem of food deserts? It's true that low-income areas often lack availability when it comes to fresh food, and their diets can be quite poor because of it. Hopefully they are able to keep prices down so that poor people can start eating more fruits and vegetables and eat more healthy.

Or, for substantially lower cost, why not just subsidize family-owned grocery stores in urban food desert neighborhoods and provide them with security from the underutilized Chicago Police? The only way to uplift urban blacks is to jumpstart small businesses and neighborhood self-sufficiency. Hell, turn all those decrepit empty factories and storefronts into microbreweries and indoor food gardens, producing legumes and mushrooms. The mushroom market is unbelievably profitable, with shitake and lion's mane being in high demand by uptown Chicago gourmet restaurants. There are chefs that would pay premium to get an exclusive local supply of mushrooms and microgreens like arugula and bean sprouts.

Oh, wait, this will never happen because it makes too much sense. They WANT blacks to remain permanently locked in the cycle of ignorance and poverty because if they ever got too smart, they'd stop voting Democrat.

Not really.

A city owned establishment can be sued for way more than any independent mom and pop ever could...

Also, an employee could even face jail time if someone gets sick or a fatality occurs as a result of their action or inaction. They'd have to be very well educated and supervised 24/7. How's that for a productive workforce.
