It’s such a pleasure to be here in the Berkshires taking up the helm of your beautiful new Co-op! I appreciate the welcome I’ve received from many of you and have truly enjoyed getting to know you and the strong, spirited staff who put their whole hearts into serving our community.
As the heat of summer fades, the occasional crisp morning brings a small taste of the impending change of season and the imminent arrival of the holidays.
We couldn’t be more excited!
We know the change of seasons, return to school and approach of the holidays can be demanding and we’re here to help. We hope you’ll consider the Co-op your go-to place for great local food and friendly, knowledgeable staff.
We also hope you’ll consider our bright new Café space your home away from home and feel free to gather with friends, bring in your book club or set a standing juice date with your yoga class.
We’re proud of the beautiful, spacious market we’ve built and the increase in sales shows that more and more people feel comfortable shopping at the Co-op.
We know that change can be hard, and we continue to work on the little details that will make this space our own. We’re looking forward to curating more local products, staging events that support local non-profits, and introducing local art and design that reflect the color and fabric of our community. We want to invite even more people
to belong to a gathering place where they can feel the difference that enjoying good food in great company can make in their lives.
All of which brings me to a question...Are you ready to make our new store your own?
If you’re an Owner who lives in MA, CT or NY, you can invest in the cooperative you own with a loan that pays dividends. It’s not just about earning up to 5% interest on your money, but also a chance to strengthen the bonds of our community and ensure the sustainable growth of our cooperative endeavor.
I hope you’ll consider making an investment in your Co-op and your community!
