Special Orders, Holds Temporarily Suspended

In an effort to better serve our greater community, VFC is implementing the following temporary service changes. The health and safety of our co-op community remains our highest priority. We thank you, in advance, for your understanding.

  • Effective immediately, we will temporarily suspend special orders of all kind.Not only can we not promise items due to out of stocks, but we can't prioritize stock to fulfill these orders over filling our shelves. If someone has already placed a special order, we will fill it as we are able; but, no further orders will be accepted at this time.
  • We will not allow any holds on items of any kind at this time.Not only can we not promise items due to multiple out of stocks, but we can't store items aside due to storage limitations. First come, first served.
  • We will implement limits on high demand items such as toilet paper and rubbing alcohol.We do this in an effort to serve as many shoppers as possible. Signs will be posted on shelves for items that will be limited.

Self-serve areas closed due to statewide mandate

We are working to repack bulk items into containers for everyone's safety. Please be patient.

Social Distancing

Please help everyone stay healthy by observing a 6 foot distance from staff and other customers. There is blue tape on the floor at the registers designating 6 feet. And please, don't shop if you have a cough or fever. We are looking for ways to help everyone have access to good food, but right now it is all hands on deck for our staff just to stay current with the rapidly changing environment.

Being able to serve as a reliable resource for food and supplies during inclement weather, crisis and otherwise is a role we proudly accept as your community-owned co-op. If we can keep our doors open, we do. More announcements are coming - be sure to sign up for our emails if you haven't already.
