Will food prices at the Co-op increase as a result of the project?

Just the opposite is true. We partner with over 150 food co-ops across the country to bring national purchasing power to our small and growing co-op. But there are still incentives to save more on our cost of goods through increasing our specific store’s volume. Because we are projecting considerably more sales we expect to be able to pass savings on to owners. We’ll also get to expand our offering of promotional programs like Co+op Deals and Co+op Basics. Finally, we will design a space that is planned to operate as a grocery store. We currently operate with built-in inefficiencies: employees make-do with less than ideal work spaces, and it takes more labor hours to stock shelves since all the product delivered doesn’t fit on displays.
