News & Events
On Monday, October 10, 2016 the annual General Membership Meeting of the Valley Co-op was held at Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren in Hagerstown. Over 40 member households attended, representing approximately 12% of total membership.
The presentation, titled “Can Valley Co-op Survive?” started with a review of the seven Co-operative Principles followed by a brief history, How Did We Get Here? Discussed was the option of staying open one more year with member financial support, initiatives to increase sales and ways to decrease expenses, and the option to close the store.
Members, suppliers, staff and board of directors all participated in the discussion. The discussion was encouraging and those present were in favor of staying open, offering ideas and resources. Members offered to take brochures to their small businesses, frequented places, meetings, etc., to assist in outreach.
To reach those not able to attend, look for a survey at the beginning of this week. Please fill it out even if you attended the meeting Monday. This is a critical time, so please read emails and other correspondence from Valley Co-op.
A decision will be reached by December 31 whether to keep the store open or to close the store and address the other three options proposed.
