About Our Relocation

Why is the Co-op moving?

We are moving our store to a new site on South Street to expand our retail space.DSCN0023

How Will Expansion Benefit Our Community?

Expanding the Co-op will:

• Provide additional jobs.

• Generate tax revenue.

• Provide opportunities for more   local farmers and vendors.

• Offer a wider variety of fresh, high quality food.

• Serve as a model for other cooperative businesses.

• Enhance our ability to support a thriving local economy.

• Provide a community room to host educational programs for everyone.
