Yahara River Grocery Co-operative

Yahara River Grocery Co-operative

Dear Members,

As you may have heard, the Yahara River Grocery Cooperative in Stoughton is having serious difficulties. YRGC opened in March 2008 is operating at a loss and is looking for a new general manager. Recently, the YRGC board president made an urgent plea for our assistance and after much consideration we worked hard and fast to come up with an interim plan that would provide them withmuch needed support.

As of the last week of October, Wynston Estis (our Store Manager for Operations) began serving as YRGC's interim general manager for a trial period of 3 phases lasting four weeks each. The desired outcome is to return YRGC to profitability (positive cash flow) and recruit a qualified general manager for permanent placement. The final phase will be to get the new general manager up to speed when he or she is hired.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know. And consider stopping by YRGC (at 229 East Main Street in Stoughton) or even becoming a member!

Anya Firszt, General Manager
