2017 Co-op General Membership Meeting

Here We Grow Again

The Co-op’s story began in 1979 in a tiny house on South Wallace  Avenue. It all started with a few people on the fringe looking for democratic control of their food supply.  The store, run mostly by volunteers, was originally called Crossroads Consumer Services.

Since that time, growth has been a central theme of the Co-op’s history. As the community has evolved, so too has our member-owned store, now boasting two locations and an offsite kitchen, bakery and warehouse.

So, what’s next? Well, we’re planning to grow of course! The Co-op owns the property adjacent to Co-op West Main at 920 West Main Street (formerly Aspen Motors). Plans are currently underway to remove this building for a projected expansion in the years ahead.

Member owners are invited to join us for the 38th annual General Membership Meeting (GMM) on Tuesday, May 16 at 7 pm upstairs in the Flying C Café.
