Happy New Year!
Here at Willy Street Co-op, we’re ready to help you stay committed to whatever resolution you choose to take on. This year, we have a New Year’s resolution of our own—we’re resolving to bring you even lower prices on the high quality organic, natural, local, and fairly traded products you demand from us.
There are two messages that we consistently hear from our Owners regarding the products we sell: you want us to continue to offer the highest quality products available, and you also want to spend less for them. The tension between these two demands is a constant challenge for us, and balancing the two is no small task. We’ve always done our best, but this year we’re resolved to do better. Look for a monthly column from me in 2015 that highlights our efforts and gives you new ideas and ways to save at the Co-op.
This month, we thought we’d start by giving a snapshot of where we currently stand compared to a few of our in-town competitors. These prices were compiled in late November 2014. We targeted some of the products that our Owners purchase most frequently and, as you’ll see, we came out somewhere in the middle of the pack on most of them. We’ll be publishing more of these lists throughout the coming year.
