A life-long Lower 9th Ward resident, Burnell Cotlon opened the Lower 9th Ward Market and Galvez Goodies at the corner of Galvez Street and Caffin Avenue with his life savings after Hurricane Katrina. After seeing the needs of fellow residents being unmet, Mr. Cotlon devoted his efforts to revitalizing the area. The Lower 9th Ward Market is a general store, offering Ninth Ward neighbors perishable and non-perishable food and goods. Mr. Cotlon has also opened a laundromat and barbershop in the same building as his store which serve as a gathering place for neighbors and friends.
