The Community Store
Located at 310 North Main Street in Freeport, New York, Cornerstone Grocery / Delicatessen opened its doors to serve the community on September 6, 2012. The grand opening celebration was attended by several community leaders who came to support this Perfecting Faith Church initiative, including Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, and the Mayor of Freeport, Andrew Hardwick. Our very own, Pastor Donald A. McClurkin, Jr. officiated the ribbon cutting ceremony as church members and guests looked on with pride.
