Happy Co-op Month! Everyone is invited to join the team at the Los Alamos Co+op Market Saturday, Oct. 29 and Sunday, Oct. 30 for Member Appreciation Days.
Members save 10 percent off regularly priced items. You do not have to be a member to shop at the Co+op or to celebrate with everyone this weekend. If you become a member this weekend, the 10 percent discount applies immediately.
In addition to the sale, the Co+op will be making fresh, delicious green chile cheeseburgers 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 pm, the Co+op will be cooking up made-to-order omelets for $10, which includes a drink, bread and fruit. Everyone is welcome!
Los Alamos Co+op Market is celebrating the power of living connected to each other and to the places that surround us. The co+op does this by using seven universal principles which are voluntary and open membership, democratic member control, members’ economic participation, autonomy and independence, education, training and information, cooperation among cooperatives, and concern for the community. As members, your participation is key. It can take many forms from shopping, volunteering, promoting, voting, or running for board elections.
Last weekend, the Co+op Board of Directors and the General Manager (GM) met for an all-day Board-GM retreat for education, bonding and strategic planning. This important annual meeting is always well received and affords the Board and GM a chance for more in-depth discussion, team building, refocusing and reflection.
Board Members will be at the Co+op on Sunday to chat and to join in celebrating the staff and members, who are the heart of the Co+op.
