Cooperatives, Peace and Hunger

By Clem Nilan, General Manager

My wife and I received many lovely cards this holiday season wishing for peace on earth. Peace has been elusive on this planet. On the global scale, the United Nations main purpose is to keep peace throughout the world. The United Nations designated 2012 as the “International Year of Cooperatives,” honoring co-ops’ important role in promoting peace through social responsibility and caring for others.

New Array of Chocolate Bins in Bulk

We've updated our line-up of bulk chocolates for your baking enjoyment. From dark chocolate to white chocolate, you'll find the chunks or chips perfect for that next batch of goodies.

A Season for Introspection

By Clem Nilan, General Manager

The winter holidays are a special time to connect with those we love. The shortening days and longer nights make this an introspective season - a great time to enjoy a good book, to try out a new comfort food, and to be thoughtful. It's an especially appropriate time to remember those in our community who go through each day in hunger and need.

Produce Department Gets an Upgrade

New Produce Cooler

We're sending a big thank-you to our customers this week for their patience as we made a few improvements to the Produce Department. We installed three brand new coolers for vegetables, herbs, and tofu. The layout in Produce has remained the same, but we think the taller coolers will make it easier to find what you're looking for. They're also significantly more energy efficient than our previous cases, which will help us lower our energy costs and further shrink our carbon footprint.

Leave Room for Pie!
