This was from the Winni forum. I haven't heard about it. I didn't copy it all.



The Concord Food Co-op began more than 40 years ago as a community buying club out of a garage.
Today, the company records about $7 million annually in sales and operates stores in Concord and New London. Yesterday, the board of directors announced the late spring opening of a third store in Wolfeboro. As people literally buy into the business, Marketing Manager Greg Lessard said more members and a new store are a sign that this structure of collective ownership has worked.
“I think the ability of the co-op to be expanding, especially in this economy, is a real tribute to the co-op model,” Lessard said.
Judy Leoni of Weare became a member of the co-op when it opened in a tiny storefront on Concord’s South Main Street in the 1990s, a little corner in the back of the building it now owns and occupies entirely. “I’m not sure what I was expecting,” said Leoni, 65.
But now she does almost all of her shopping at the co-op, making frequent trips for fruits and vegetables. Yesterday, she stood in the produce section of the 2,000-square-foot store, holding a yam in one hand.

Any idea where they are to locate?

"Wolfeboro" doesn't mean "downtown".

Not excited?

I yam.

What a Face

I think I know where it's going...

"And while the co-op business model is new to Wolfeboro, pastry chef Donna Love is not. Love and her husband operated a restaurant and pastry shop in the lakeside town before she joined the co-op in 2009. She will stay in the Concord kitchen, but her baked goods will be sold in the Wolfeboro co-op near her old haunt."

I think it is going next to the Nordic Skiier, where the old natural food store used to be.
