Incorporated in September of 1973, Willy Street Co-op was born into a politically charged atmosphere. Founding members felt a need to make a statement to support an alternative way of life. Over forty years later, Willy Street Co-op continues to provide alternatives–offering the finest in natural and organic foods; maintaining a safe, participatory workplace; supporting local businesses and suppliers; and operating the store efficiently for the long-term benefit of Owners and the community.
Willy Street Co-op is owned by more than 34,000 active Owners, governed by a Board of Directors, and operated by a paid staff. Owners have always been the backbone of the Co-op, supporting it financially and participating in governance.
The Board of Directors welcome your comments by email:

goes to Board members only.
As a cooperative, we are committed to being responsive to our Owners and shoppers. This can best be accomplished when the Board reflects the wide diversity and interests of our Owners. We are especially eager to welcome new Board members with skills and background relevant to a large, complex business, for example, experience in business, community development, real estate, law, retail operations, or human resources. Board of Directors elections are held each year. The candidates are announced at the Annual Meeting & Party in July, and elections commence August 1st.
