Deli Refresh Begins July 7

Your co-op is constantly focused on improving the shopping and dining experience. To that end, we will be updating our deli and back of house production areas.

Phase One of this refresh will begin Sunday, July 7. During this week, our kitchen, bakery and meat & seafood area will receive new walls, floors, fixtures and equipment. In addition, our deli service counter and sandwich station will be updated with new countertops and equipment. In the cafe, we will install a new reverse osmosis water station.

To that end, we voted at our April meeting to increase the amount of board seats from seven to nine, and to begin recruiting two new members to fill those seats. Today, we are excited to introduce you to our two new board members, Victor Aguilar and Rachel Jefferson..
