Expansion Update March 1, 2017

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.
