Update on the New Holly Street Property from the General Manager

Co-op New buildingv2On November 1, the Co-op seized an exciting opportunity and purchased the building located directly across Holly Street from the Downtown store. Securing that building was the first step of an ambitious 2- to 3-year project that will result in an improved experience in both the Downtown store and parking lot—and in the new building, which is full of potential.

The project will proceed in three phases:
Phase I—Remodel the new building to accommodate administration offices, the Healthy Connection classroom, a community meeting space, and a bakery production facility with a small retail storefront. Completed by early 2015.
Phase II—Spruce up the Downtown store with a remodeled deli that will include a self-service hot and cold bar and mezzanine seating. Completed by fall 2015.
Phase III—Expand and reconfigure the parking lot—dependent on approval of zoning changes—to add a minimum of 15 parking spaces and improve the traffic flow. Completion in summer of 2015 or 2016.
