Expansion Update March 1, 2017

Posted by VFC Marketing Team on Mar 1, 2017 1:23:00 PM

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.

We're now parking on the new lot!

It seems like a sea of concrete right now, but one of the recommendations from Viroqua City Council’s traffic study was that we maximize parking to take pressure off the streets of our residential neighborhood.Imagine another island around the utility pole and all three islands with shrubs and perennials. Landscaping is also planned for the north side of the lot along Broadway Street next summer. We’re planning an electric vehicle charging station on the north edge. Center Avenue will remain open through the winter.

Well, we made it! The new parking lot opened before Thanksgiving! Thank you so much to our staff and customers who parked further away while we finished the first portion. It really helped and we now have a much larger lot to park in – even if a portion of it remains closed while we continue our expansion project.

Brief Update

For the following ~3.5 weeks, we asked our staff to refrain from parking within 1-2 blocks from the store to ensure our customers can park as close as possible.
