An inspirational flip-book from co-op enthusiast, Jon Steinman...
Designing Your Co-op
What is store design? Your co-op won’t beam in to our plot of land from a corporate office far away. Our co-op will be built for us and our community - to reflect our needs, our culture and our dreams for our store. The choices that make up our co-op, from the look and feel, to the building materials, to the sandwiches on the shelves, will be created just for us.
We’re teaming up with seven roots, a co-op design and support group, to design our store. Stay tuned here to watch our co-op come to life!
How you can help
Besides giving your input on what you would like to see in our store you can participate in the Community Investment Campaign until the extended date of November 30, 2021. The best made plans can't be implemented and our store can be built if we don't have a successful capital campaign. As owners and members of the community it’s on us to raise a portion of the construction budget in order to keep financing costs low. The Food Shed Co-op is selling preferred shares of stock and accepting loans from owners which is less costly than borrowing money from conventional lenders. On the other hand you stand to make more by investing in the Co-op than by leaving your money in the bank. A win-win proposition for you and for the Co-op. Click here to access a lot of great information about our Community Investment Campaign. And hurry, the extended campaign ends on November 30, 2021. PLEDGE TODAY!
What will it be?
Hundreds of folks shared their dreams for our co-op. This is what we hope to build together.
