There will be a limited number of in-store events this year as we work through the process of expanding our co-op to make it bigger and better than the co-op you now know and love.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in March of 2020.
Thank you for continuing to shop with us, as we plan to be open throughout the process. It may be a little noisy and dusty at times, but we appreciate your support – without it, there would be no expansion. And that would be sad. We’ll have a larger café, a bigger meat and seafood section, more fresh, local produce and an expanded deli/kitchen, when it is all said and done.
We’re offering another segment of our popular Kids Co-op Explorer Program, redesigned for 2020. This time, your child completes the requirements at home and the only time a parent needs to come to the co-op is to pick up a new kit. Something fun (and educational) for your child while sheltering in place!
The program runs from April 4th through July 11th. There will be a new kit coming out every two weeks, so the first kit will be out on April 4, and the next kit will come out on April 18th. You can pick up your kit anytime during the two week period. Pickup options include asking the cashier for one when you shop in the store, or adding a kit to your online Curbside Pickup order. The dates are listed below for quick reference.
The first kit will come with your child’s passport as well as a letter explaining the program in detail. Each kit will contain a letter filled with fun facts; a seed packet with directions on how to grow the plant; three samples of a fruit or vegetable in dried form; and an activity sheet. The kids will also be encouraged to try some fresh produce at home and there will be a section in the back of the passport for recording that information.
When your child has finished all 8 segments of the passport program, they can bring the completed passport to the co-op and select a prize. If you have questions about the program, email Kari@friendlycity.coop
Kit #6 comes out Saturday, June 13.
