Jungle Jim’s International Market is launching a new feature to grab the attention of home-bound residents looking to alleviate boredom.

The Butler County grocery store, which also has a location in Clermont County’s Union Twp., will offer Facebook Live shows led by their experts and founder “Jungle” Jim Bonaminio.

The series kicks off from 3 to 4 p.m. Monday and continues at 3 p.m. both April 22 and April 24.

Monday’s episode will be hosted by Somer Wilson, Eastgate Jungle Jim’s cheese expert, who will walk viewers through the basics of creating a Movie Night Charcuterie board at home. Viewers may ask questions and learn more about the balance of delicious cheese, meats and more.

The series continues April 22 with a live question-and-answer session hosted by Oscar Event Center Executive Chef James Trent, who will focus on topics suggested by Jungle Jim’s customers.

Customers may add to the conversation, as the goal is to cover numerous questions during the live stream. The series finale on April 24 will be hosted by Jungle Jim at the Fairfield location, where he will discuss how he created the now-iconic store.
