Over the last few years we haven’t really changed our hours in summer time with everything that was going on. As many of you know electricity costs went up quite a bit(about 40% increase for us) at the beginning of the year so we are looking at expanding our hours this year for the summer to help offset some of those additional costs. Effective June 3rd we will be staying open later on Friday and Saturday until 7pm(coffee service will be broken down at 6pm to streamline closing). We’ve also love to hear from you in the comments on whether there are other days and times you’d like us to be open a bit more. We can’t make any promises but we’d love to hear from you!
It’s time for a new edition of an MRC Newsletter thanks to the efforts of our dedicated volunteers! In the Newsletter we have a question about our open hours so if you feel like you have input please let us know. Click on the link or the image below to go right to the Newsletter.
You may have noticed a few months back we moved our cheeses over to the display cooler right as you come into the Co-op. This was thanks to the suggestion of our board president and we’ve been pretty happy with the switch. There was a plan in place to expand our local dairy goods selection and have finally hooked up with a local dairy distributor to bring in a bunch of new dairy items from local farms! Check out the list below and for a full list of new products in the Co-op please take a look at our newsletter!
If you haven’t already received the April Marsh River Coop Newsletter in your inbox you can see it here by clicking the link. Hope you find it informative! At the top right of the newsletter page please find links to subscribe and to the back issues. Launched in February, thanks largely to the efforts of volunteer editor and new board member Brenda Moot with back up from the Volunteer and Outreach Committee, these are the first newsletters to serve the coop community in many years! If you are interested in helping in this effort, please contact Kim, as volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
