Get your "Nifty Gifties" at Willy Street Co-op
Nifty Gifties are products that are local, fair trade, or natural, AND they make a positive impact in the world when you buy them. We have a wide variety of Nifty Gifties at all three Willy Street Co-op stores! For example:
Andes Gifts Fair Trade hats, scarves and mittens for adults and kids
Hand-knit by indigenous women in the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. Your purchase of an Andes Gift item helps employ 10 women that knit for Willy Street Co-op's three locations.

More than just a grocery store
Our stores may look like other grocery stores, but we’re fundamentally different. A co-op, or cooperative, is an organization that is owned and run jointly by its members, who share the profits and benefits. We are guided by the Seven Cooperative Principles. Everyone can shop at the Co-op, but Owners receive extra benefits. As an Owner, when you purchase food and products you invest in a business you own. You support local farmers, product suppliers, and staff who live and work in your community.
It's easy and inexpensive to become a Willy Street Co-op Owner! You can join today for as little as $10 (or even $4, if you are eligible for certain kinds of financial assistance). Stop in at any of our stores or sign up online.
