success for the dill Pickle looks like...

With a store that is larger and more convenient to access, Dill Pickle should grow by increasing the number of owners & customers we serve through marketing, increasing its percentage of wallet of existing owner/customers by increasing the breadth and depth of selection and to continue to emphasize its ability to serve working class and lower-income communities by providing quality food at competitive price points and by making sure the community knows that Dill Pickle is place that they can comfortably shop.

I live around the corner from the Dill Pickle, so it's continued success will be a major factor in my quality of life. I want a healthy, thriving co-op so that I can shop there for years to come.
