First Friday: Member-Owners Save!
Our monthly First Friday sale is September 1st, when active Member-Owners will save 10% on items in the Chill department! Stock up and save on everything in our freezer cases including meat, frozen entrees and sides, ice cream and other frozen desserts. Most of the items in our refrigerated case are on sale as well, including bottled kombucha, dairy items, cheese, eggs, and other refrigerated foods. This discount applies to items that are already on sale. Although some items in the following departments (Beer/Wine/Cider, Grocery [soda and water], Deli, Bulk Foods, and Wellness) may be refrigerated, they are not part of the Chill department and will not be on sale.

Take advantage of these savings by making sure you are an active Member-Owner!
New and Improved!
Regular shoppers have noticed all the activity happening at the Co-op, thanks to some paid work and a lot of wonderful volunteers. We have murals on the front of the building and the back wall, with another mural on the way. We have a corrugated metal fence along the front of the parking lot, an outdoor eating area, and last but not least, our long-awaited sliding door has been installed!

This is only the beginning, so stay tuned for more improvements!
