Support these businesses. (They supported us!)

Support these businesses. (They supported us!)

Without the generosity, expertise and commitment demonstrated by the businesses below, the new Co-Op would not have been possible (or anywhere near as awesome as it is). We would like to acknowledge the contributions of these businesses and encourage you to please support them. They have gone beyond the call of duty to contribute to the new store and we are very grateful for this. 

HUGE THANK YOU.

Our friends at Alfalfa House donated our rather beautiful looking fruit and vegetable display. Although is wasn’t that beautiful when it arrived. With some imagination, elbow grease and discount paints from Murobond it was transformed into the beautiful and functional feature you can see above.


Murobond Paints. Murobond gave us a 30% discount on all paint. Our crisp white walls, beautiful fruit display and many other painted surfaces were made possible because of their kind discount.
