Neighborhood Night: Add your Voice to the Vision on Jan.14, 5-9pm

We're growing to better serve you: a new location at 2746 N Milwaukee = full-service grocery + deli & seating + beer & wine + community room, coming Summer 2016.That means 35 new living-wage jobs, more dollars to local producers, and a growing capacity to meet our cooperative mission.

What products will be on the shelves? What programs will be offered? What will the space look and feel like? How can the co-op best serve its community? You decide!

Join us for a NEIGHBORHOOD NIGHT of cooperative planning at 2746 N Milwaukee, new store site on Thursday, January 14 from 5-9pm for an open house & community input stations, with a brief program & presentation at 7pm.
