THANK YOU OWNERS! I received a voice-mail message recently that epitomized the bulk of the feedback we’ve received regarding the changes we have recently undertaken at the Co-op: “I was in the store this morning and I just want to tell you I was blown away. It is so wonderful. The food is amazing. And, the staff are really incredible. Everything is just so lovely. I must tell you this was well worth every effort that went into it.”
Once again, I must say thank you to all of you, our owners, for making it happen. Our owners gave us the vision of a thriving co-op that had the potential to grow, and also made it clear that creating a great store at our Main St. location was the first priority. It was our owners who invested their $300 to purchase a share in the store; and the combined investment of the owners who have joined that has supported this remodel. Moreover, it was our owners who kept our fires burning with tons of positive feedback throughout, despite the moved-around aisles and shrunken parking lot.
In the New Year, we look forward to announcing our new store location; the next step in our plan to create a world with more access to local food, more co-op economy, and more happy knowledgeable people. However, for now, we pause to say thank you and congratulations. This remodel, this store, this co-op is a true community accomplishment, and we the staff feel so lucky to act as stewards on your behalf. Happy New Year!
