Imagine walking into a store where you are greeted with a smile, where the staff members are waiting to help you find exactly what you need. Imagine you can talk with the staff and they will listen to you and truly value your feedback and ideas.
Imagine the shelves are lined with all of your favorite products, many of which are grown or produced by people you know. Imagine how it would feel to be able to trust that the products in the store were carefully selected because a dedicated and knowledgeable Buyer is guided by a food policy and store mission committed to providing you with the highest quality nutritious whole foods.
Imagine that you have a voice and a vote – that you can elect who sets the policies and direction of the store. Imagine that as this business grows and profits, you would get a share of the profit in the form of check mailed to your home.
Wouldn't it feel like this was your store? That you owned it?
As a co-owner of Viroqua Food Co-op, you are just that, an Owner of the Co-op. Not many people can say that they own the store where they shop, but at our Co-op this vision is a reality that anyone can be part of.
