Right now we are taking the steps to develop the initial store, which will be a part of an extended chain. Our focus is to implement a model that is parallel in design to each community, meeting specific needs of the area.
It will take the voice of the people to communicate what is needed, which is why we are developing steering committees. Members of the Steering Committee will promote the COGS to other residents, decide the name of the store, as well as its values and mission. Individuals will provide feedback in regards to the location, products, and services of the store.
To join the Steering Committee you have to pledge to be a shareholder of the store, be a resident of its zip code, and believe that creating a community-owned grocery store is possible. Click the button to learn more and join today.
