A Time for Appreciation

To Our Community,

Early in the pandemic, I promised to write to you even when there was not much to report, and I am happy to say this is one of those rare weeks. There is plenty I could write about, of course. But for now, we are in a holding pattern, which is a good time for reflection and appreciation.

To our entire cooperative community—employees, members, board members, vendors, and shoppers—thank you for the continued support, day after day.

We will talk again next Thursday. Remember to be kind to one another and to yourselves, and we look forward to serving you in our stores and at the curbside.

Onward and upward,
