STAFF THE STORE!
We would like to thank all who have participated in our Staff the Store! Campaign. We have heard from 70 of our 393 owners and we appreciate your dedication to our future. As of August 10, your generous donations have raised $11,216 of our $17,100 goal, leaving $5,884 needed to complete this campaign. If you have not already donated, please consider helping with any amount! If everyone who has not yet donated gave $15 or $20, our goal would be met. Support the Co-op as we hire our first employee and develop a mini-store!
The Macomb Food Co-op is now accepting applications for the position of Online Market and Mini-Store Manager. The successful candidate will support the continuing growth of the Food Co-op by managing and supporting market activities and communicating and working closely with producers, owners, and volunteers. For more information, see the job announcement.
The Macomb Food Co-op is dedicated to opening a store that will sell local and regional fresh food and locally-produced items. Until that is a reality, we have developed a weekly Online Market that connects producers to consumers and keeps us on track for achieving our end goal of having a store. The Online Market has increased our Co-op ownership and has allowed us to develop working relationships with local producers.
The Market is open for shopping each week from 6 pm Friday until 9 am Monday. Orders need to be placed during the weekend. Access the Market by clicking on the Shop Online This Weekend link in the upper right of this page.
A community member may shop as our guest for one month. After that, he or she will need to join the Co-op by purchasing a $100 owner share; an installment payment plan is available. Owner forms can be downloaded at the Become an Owner link on the menu bar above or can be picked up at our office in Pumo Insurance, 19 E. Side Square, Macomb.
If you would like to volunteer on a Co-op committee or at the Online Market distribution, email us at email@example.com or call 309.255.5572 or 309.255.5094.
