V Marks the Shop, an all-vegan convenience store, recently opened in Philadelphia.
The store offers a variety of plant-based snacks and meal options, including vegan meat, cheese and egg products.
There’s also an emphasis on independent businesses and locally sourced products.
Co-owners and married couple Carlo Giardina and Carmella Lanni spend time researching smaller businesses with products that most stores don’t carry, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
“But we’re also a community space — people can come here to hang out, learn about veganism, meet other vegans and participate in events,” said Lanni.
V Marks the Shop has a in-store seating area and free WiFi.
