The times they are a-changing!
2017 promises to be a year of intense change for the Co-op. We’ll double our retail square feet and our staff will grow by 40% in a few short years. We’ll likely spend most of this year (and little of next year) in a construction zone to bring new services and more space to our community-owned grocery. We remain committed to our values of creating access to local and sustainable foods, and a flourishing local and cooperative economy. A larger produce area has a direct link to supporting our local farmers and food producers. We reach for a sustainable environment by supporting organic agriculture and choosing equipment that’s energy efficient. New multi-use spaces will give us opportunities to share information on health and nutrition. Below is a preliinary drawing of the retail floor, changes are still being made, but it will give you an idea of the direction we are going.
