National Co-op Month is here and we're excited to kick-off a month-long celebration that represents what Prairie Food Co-op has been bringing to the Lombard and surrounding area for years. We have an exciting new PROPs partner this month, will once again be participating in Spooktacular, will host a popular canning workshop in partnership with Helen Plum Library, and, to celebrate our 3rd Year Anniversary of selling Ownership shares, will be giving a special gift to our October Owners!
Every October Owner will receive one of our new Prairie Food Co-op tote bags! These are roomy, sustainable, 100% rPET recycled tote bags from Bagito. Each bag is double stitched for extra-strength, can fit on your key chain, are visually appealing, and Bagito donates a meaningful percentage of their sales towards teaching K-12 students about environmental stewardship. Did we mention they're beautiful?
We have so much going on in Co-Optober so join the celebration by making this the month you become an Owner if you haven't yet. By becoming an Owner, you help support our mission to bring a community-Owned grocery store that focuses on selling locally produced, transparently labelled food and goods that keep more of the profit in our community. Plus, at 600 Owners we will begin the design process of our store and will be tapping our Owners for their input.
Help us reach 600 Owner in October and receive a cool PFC tote bag as well. It's just a one-time, $200 buy-in or installment payment as low as $25. Click the link to find out more.
