We celebrate our members!
Thanks to all who stopped by our booth at the Celebrate Fuquay Festival on Saturday, June 7. All of our board members agree that it re-energizes us for the hard work of opening a food co-op when we get to talk to current and prospective members about what a co-op can do for our community. We absolutely love it when members stop by to see how the progress is coming or to just chat because now we’re in this together. As part of the co-op, we’re part of something bigger than ourselves; we’re making a positive change in our community one member at a time, and that’s always fun to share.
If you haven’t joined, there’s no time like the present. Cooperative businesses, unlike privately held businesses, have to prove their customer base up front in order to secure funding for opening the store. Each member-owner should also be a customer. That’s why it’s important to join sooner rather than later. So…when will the co-op store open? When you join! And, that’s just what our new member #346 did at the festival on Saturday!
