“Many of those living and working in the surrounding neighborhoods have expressed a desire for a quality grocery store located nearby. The university is delighted to welcome a locally owned, unique grocer to add to the vibrancy and sustainability of the Loop,” said Cheryl Adelstein, director of community relations and local government affairs at WUSTL.

“We are equally thrilled to add Joe Edwards’ Peacock Loop Diner as a part of this development. His unique concept will appeal to both residents and visitors alike,” Adelstein added.

Students, faculty and interested neighbors are encouraged to regularly check out the dedicated Loop Living website to stay up-to-date on the latest developments.
