October is Co-op Month

Every October, folks from all over celebrate cooperatives. Co-op grocery stores (like us!), farmer cooperatives (Organic Valley, Cabot Creamery), worker cooperatives (BreadHive, Equal Exchange), credit unions (Great Erie Federal Credit Union) and beyond. We all benefit from the power of people working together: building connections, empowering owners, and creating businesses that are reflective of and benefit their communities.

Together, we’ve created something that serves our families, neighbors and the WNY region. That goes for our store that we shop in and the people we’ve connected to by being in business together.Thank you owners – you’re a part of something to be proud of!
