Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier is extending its search for a possible second location in Waterbury. While its research showed that moving The Coop into the current RJ’s Friendly Market under the proposed plan poses too great a financial risk, the studies also indicated the potential for adding a Waterbury store remains feasible. As a result, The Coop will continue to explore options for an optimal storefront, though no final decision is anticipated in the near future.“We’ve heard from a lot of people who live and work around Waterbury that The Coop would be a welcome addition to this vibrant area”, explains Coop General Manager Kari Bradley. “But, we have to find the right fit before bringing this to a vote of our Member-Owners. They have raised a lot of questions during this process that will need to be addressed.”A new store and new market share would help The Coop advance its mission to sell more healthy and local food, serve more Members, increase sales for local vendors, create more jobs and cooperative commerce and deliver greater economic, social and environmental returns.For more information about The Coop, visit www.hungermountain.com(link is external), contact Krystal or Robyn at 223-8000 ext. 202, or sign up to be on The Coop’s e-news list by sending an email to [email protected](link sends e-mail).Source: Hunger Mountain Coop. 8.19.2010Hunger Mountain Coop, located in Montpelier, Vermont is a community-owned natural market & café committed to building a dynamic community of healthy individuals, sustainable local food systems and thriving cooperative commerce.
