End of “Keep Valley Co-op’s Doors Open” Campaign

Thank you all so much for your generous contributions to the “Keep Valley Co-op’s Doors Open” campaign. As we near the end of the campaign it has become clear that we will fall short of our goal. Therefore, we are ending it now.

Those who contributed will receive a separate communication regarding their refund.

The Board, together with a Task Force comprised of members, have been looking at alternatives.

Short term we’re considering reverting to a buying club, a model we successfully used during the first three years of our existence. To help us define what a successful buying club might look like, please look for an email with a link to a survey. The survey will arrive right after Christmas.

Longer term we’re looking at possibilities to mount a capitalization campaign and reopen as a store at a different location.

Your involvement is key to our making decisions that benefit the community. Thank you again for your support of Valley Co-op!

Have a great Holiday, and please do watch for the survey form.


Rita Bratcher (President)
Julius Goepp (Vice-President)
