~REMINDER: Task Force Meeting this Monday & Call for BOD Applicants~

Our store will continue to be open to the public on Thursday thru Saturday each week in January. In February we will operate as a buying club, where only members with active accounts on VCShop will be able to order products online.

There is a lot of energy regarding continuing to operate as a buying club after our lease ends at the end of February. The Buying Club survey almost ready to go out. We continue to look for locations (see specs at https://goo.gl/gzcina) and may even be able to afford to pay a bit more rent. Next meeting of the Task Force will be on Monday, January 9 at 7 PM, at Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren, 20402 Beaver Creek Rd Hagerstown. If you care about continuing to have easy access to products from our local vendors after our doors close, this is the meeting to attend! All who contributed to our capital campaign will be receiving an email with details about refunds. Refunds are already in process for those who contributed via GoFundMe.

Thank you again! If we cease buying club operations after February, we will refund pro-rated membership dues to those who paid $35 on or after September 2016 and who request a refund. Please consider being part of Valley Co-op’s Board of Directors, as we regroup as a buying club and work to reopen with an improved storefront! Please email info@valleycoop.org if you’re interested in receiving an application.
