Go Co-op! New Pioneer Co-op

One of our amazing Member-Owners recently traveled cross-country. On their way they stopped at food co-ops and shared anecdotes and photos from each visit with us:

Iowa City is where we found the New Pioneer Co-op.  Our first encounter was with an employee who has worked for the Co-op for 31 years — so far!  They actually have two locations currently and a third one in planning stages.  The layout reminded us of the Montpelier, VT Co-op.  I was impressed that they sold a ceramic mug with their logo – made by an Iowa City pottery (selling price $9.99).  I think the location we visited might have been their original site.  They now have a larger store north of Iowa City in Coralville.
