Introducing an updated logo to carry us into 2017 and beyond!
After surveying owners, consulting staff, and working with a designer on both graphic & interior elements for our new store, we've updated our visual identity to better reflect a Dill Pickle that's open & inclusive-- welcoming those yet unfamiliar with us to stop in, grab a basket, and join our co-op community. Using a cucumber slice as a nod to our namesake allows us to show everyone what's inside: fresh, sustainably-sourced food!
We're open 9am-9pm daily-- stop by!
It's official: The Dill Pickle Food Co-op is taking a huge leap and jumping in to construction of our new location at 2746 N Milwaukee Ave! We're preparing to fill 10,000 square feet with new products, freshly prepared foods, community programming, and a stellar team of employees!
Are you with us? Here are five ways that Dill Pickle owners have kept us on the road to expansion:
2. Vesting up. Owner equity is the foundation of our cooperative enterprise. Purchase additional equity at $50 a share, up to $500 in fully refundable shares to help us grow. Not sure where your account stands? Call the store at 773.252.COOP
3. Shopping our co-op. Your spending power is epic, and we need you to wield it at our cozy store on Fullerton Ave to fuel the economic engine for expansion. Check out our Co+op Deals flyer and stop in to see what other great produce, dairy, bulk goods, and wellness products we've stocked for you from 80+ local vendors.
4. Spreading the word. We're 1,936 owners strong and counting! We need more people like you in the Dill Pickle family-- so tell your friends, neighbors, colleagues, elected officials and enemies about how they can benefit from joining the only consumer food co-op in Chicago. (C'mon, here's a video to share!)
5. Being leaders. 9 of your fellow owners serve on our Board of Directors and are supported by dozens of others through committee work, outreach, and store shifts. Join our Hands-On Owner Program to get involved and lend your expertise (or eagerness!) in finance, fundraising, community-building, advocacy, and more.
Thanks for being part of this project with us. It's a heavy lift, and we're stronger together. Stay tuned for updates as construction commences!
