What was your motivation for coming to and/or joining the Co-op? My mom brought me here a lot when I was younger, so I’ve always been coming here. But at some point I just thought to myself, I’m shopping here a lot, I might as well invest.
What is your favorite thing you get from the Co-op?
I like the hot tea. There’s something special about someone else making a hot drink for you, it’s different than making it for myself at home.
If you could change one thing about the Co-op, what would it be? Make the floors even! Chasing carts is no fun…
What do you LOVE and hope will never change about the Co-op? It’s cozy. I usually see people I know. There’s a community feel. It’s a different vibe. I shop at different places for different reasons. When I go to Trader Joe’s, I’m all about business and I want to get in and get out. But I come here for special things. I like to take my time here, enjoy the experience.
How would you describe your lifestyle, and how does the Co-op fit in? My lifestyle has an emphasis on healthy living and healthy eating for sure. I’m a business owner, so my lifestyle is also busy. For me, the Co-op means having a place to go, where I don’t have to cook, and I can still get something healthy to eat. The hot bar is great!
