STAFF THE STORE!
Continuing to operate the Macomb Online Market will require paid staff, and having paid staff would allow us to leverage staff time to operate a “mini-store” as well. However, we need your help to be able to make this happen!! Click here to read more information on Staff the Store!
As of July 1, the Staff the Store! Campaign has generated pledges for 61.5% of our goal, or $10,516. We need to continue the awesome momentum! We need your help to donate, spread the word, and volunteer in order to make this campaign a success.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 309.255.5572 or 309.255.5094.
