Over the past 50 years, New Pioneer has called the Corridor home.
In 1971, a small group of Iowa Citians formed a buying club to pool their purchasing power and split bags of rice, grains, and flour. The American food chain was becoming more processed, and this response gave shoppers in Iowa City another option. Co-op volunteers met and distributed food out of a community center until they were able to move to our first store on Bowery Street in Iowa City and hire our first full-time team members.
50 years later, New Pioneer employs nearly 130 team members, has three stores, and sells groceries through an online store-- something our founders could have never imagined.
