Featured Story

What did the Co-op Look Like

The early Co-op featured an extensive bulk section with lots of grains and beans, peanut butter and honey, granola and cheese. Working members helped run the business. Members at large elected the Board of Directors, who oversaw the business. The cash drawer was a cigar box.

From these humble beginnings the Co-op grew and grew.
