Urban corner store interventions have been implemented to improve access to and promote purchase of healthy foods. However, the perspectives of store owners and managers, who deliver and shape these interventions in collaboration with nonprofit, government, and academic partners, have been largely overlooked. The study sought to explore the views of store owners and managers on the role of their stores in the community and their beliefs about health problems and solutions in the community.
