What do you value about your co-op? When you think about Co-op Market in five years, what do you envision? If you shop at the co-op, our board of directors and management want to hear from you.
Our doors have been open for five years now! Before that we spent six years preparing to open.
Since opening we’ve grown from $2.5 million to almost $4 million in annual sales.
We work with 52 local vendors and are looking for more.
We opened our doors because of you. More than 115 co-op Owners made loans to help us open, and more than 3,700 Owners have invested in our co-op through member equity.
We will be paying back loans for a few more years, so it isn’t quite time to begin planning for expansion. But now is the time for the board and management to start working on a five- to 10-year strategic plan.
Your input will help us hammer out our core values and craft a shared vision. You can help create the framework for making important decisions about our co-op’s future.
As part of its strategic planning process, the board is hosting a series of listening sessions. Please join us on one of the following dates for good food and conversation about the future of your co-op.
• Sunday, April 22, 5 to 8 p.m.
• Tuesday, June 5, 4 to 7 p.m. (Postponed. New date to be announced.)
• Tuesday, July 31, 1 to 4 p.m
All sessions will be held at JP Jones Community Development Center, 2400 Rickert Street.
Everyone is welcome!
