New Items 01/05/2019

Hi Everyone,

It’s that time again for a new items post. We didn’t want to send out anything right away where we had done so many posts right before the holidays (we hope everyone had a good time). Also, if anyone has any good ideas with what to do with left over Christmas Trees please do let us know. I was thinking maybe feeding them to goats but I’m not sure about that one, I’d love to figure out a good use for them.

And now onto your new items!

  1. Suecakes English Muffin (While Ralph’s Cafe is closed we thought we’d try some different stuff)
  2. Sierra Nevada Torpedo 6 Pack Bottles
  3. 100% Pure Beeswax Tea Lights 6 Pack
  4. Bulk Fine Grind Himalayan Salt

And we’ve been having trouble keeping the Equal X Chocolates in stock due to problems at one of our distributors so we’ve switched over to a different distributor which means new Equal X varieties!

  1. Equal X Milk Chocolate (Org)
  2. Equal X Extreme Dark Chocolate (Org)


MRC Milestone

Hi Everyone,

We wanted to pass along that with three days to spare your Marsh River Cooperative has passed $250,000 in sales this year! This is 45% growth over last year! We need to thank everyone that have worked so hard to ensure that the Co-op grows and gets stronger every year.

Thanks to our wonderful volunteers who do so many different tasks in the Co-op. From our board members to store staffing, going and picking up products, facilities help and all sorts of other tasks!

Thank you to our members for continuing to support the Co-op by joining with equity and annual payment as well as including us in your regular shopping trips. A lot of our members are also volunteers so they do double duty!

Thank you to our vendors, many of whom are small local business as the Co-op works out the details of ordering and operating!

Thank to all of our customers and community members who have supported the Co-op through their purchases and ideas!

And thank you to our dedicated staff who have worked hard to make the Co-op succeed!

If we missed anyone we want to say thanks!
