For Domingo Almonte, owner of York’s P&P Deli and Grocery, operating his own businesses means long term financial security for his young family. A loan from Community First Fund allowed him to purchase his business property and make a long term commitment to the City of York.
Eight years ago Domingo Almonte, a native of the Dominican Republic, opened P&P Grocery on West Philadelphia Street in York City. The bodega-style grocery and deli sells convenience store items as well as hot foods familiar to the local Latino population.
