Coronavirus Update: Closed on Easter

We wish to thank all of our Member-Owners and shoppers for their generosity and patience during these difficult times. Your notes of appreciation and thanks to our staff mean so much to us. We need each other’s support more than ever before.

Last week marked our co-op’s 7th Anniversary. While we celebrated much differently than in previous years, we hope you’ll join us in reflecting on all we have accomplished together and how we can continue to work together in the coming weeks to be stronger together. We know we’re grateful for all of you.

Closed on Easter

To show our appreciation to our staff, and for our team to take a much-needed break, our store will be closed on Sunday, April 12. This day off will offer staff some much-deserved time to rest and be with our families.

Pre-Order Your Holiday Roast

While we recognize your plans to celebrate have changed, we still have some great holiday offerings for a smaller family meal. Plan for your holiday meal and pre-order your Easter Roast today. Choose your pick-up date from April 9 – 11, and your order will be waiting for you at the Meat Department.

Get 10% Off

We know that grocery bills may be higher as we are all cook more at home. We want to help! Our 10% off Member-Owner appreciation coupon went live on April 1st, and we extended this one-time discount to be used anytime between now and June 30th. Not yet a Member-Owner? Learn more!

Shopper Safety

Sanitation Stations in the Bulk Aisle
To further promote your safety in our bulk department, we added two new sanitizing stations in that aisle with step-by-step instructions. These stations are in addition to our regular sanitizing of the bulk bins and scoops along with other high-frequency touch points throughout our store.

New Signs at Check Out
We added “Please Wait Here” floor decals to the check-out lines to show you where to stand while waiting. We’ll continue to explore other effective strategies for flattening the curve.

Good News, the Return of Offerings

Bulk Pre-Ordering is Back
Our distributor lifted our ordering caps, so we can resume our bulk pre-ordering system. You can order any product in bulk, a case, in the quantity that the product comes in (for example cases of 6 or 12 items, or in bags usually between 1 and 50 pounds). Co-op Member-Owners receive a 10% discount on the total price of the product ordered (except when the item is already on sale). Everyone else receives a 5% discount on the total price of the product ordered (again, except when the item is already on sale). Learn more!

The Expansion of Offerings

Prepared Foods
We offer an even wider diversity of ready-to-go meals, sandwiches, and salads in our deli. Call in advance to order for pick up: 603-283-5412. Also, don’t forget that our full-service beverage bar remains open.

Other Announcements

Milk Bottles
We still accept returnable milk bottles. In the check-out line, show the bottle(s) to your cashier and then put it in the crate beyond the register.

Reusable Bags
Just a reminder to leave your reusable bags at home or in your car. By state order, we no longer allow customers to bring reusable bags into our store.
