THE BRONX - A Western Beef Inc. supermarket will open in the Bronx bringing jobs to the Tremont neighbohood.

Around 40 news jobs will be created once the store opens. Jim DiFrancisco, a manager of a nearby Western Beef supermarket, says several residents ask him for jobs throughout the day.

The expansion is part of a initiative under the Food Retail Expansion to Support Health program which tries to bring healthy options to underserved neighborhoods.
