We did it!
Our mission to open a community-owned, full-service grocery store is one step closer to becoming a reality! On Tuesday, your Co-op board signed a lease for our new location at 142 East Market Street. Our member-owner base is now over 300 member-owners strong and our goal is to reach 600 by the end of 2021. Thanks to this growth, and many other initiatives, we were able to sign the lease for our future store site!
We are incredibly excited to share this news and to send huge thanks to our amazing community -- YOU have made this goal a reality! We especially want to express our most sincere gratitude to Zukin Realty for their support of the Co-op, and look forward to our growth in this space!
To start, 142 E Market Street will become the new pick-up location for our ongoing Local Food Program. It will also be used to introduce the Co-op’s newest initiative, the Co-op GoBox, a pilot program featuring fully-customizable boxes of locally-made foodstuffs, grocery staples, and artisan creations. We will share many more updates in the coming weeks, including details on the GoBox pilot program which we will roll out over the next few weeks. So stay tuned for details and ordering information!

. Onward and upward, Co-operators and thanks again to you all!
