Here’s How to Help the North Coast Co-op, Says Letter Writer
Remember opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect that of Redheaded Blackbelt nor have we checked the letters for accuracy.
I’m writing this letter to notify the members of the Co-op as well as the general community that the North coast Co-op is in the midst of a financial crisis.
The Co-op for many is a cherished institution—much more than a grocery store–and I feel certain if people knew about the situation help would be forthcoming.
For background information on the crisis I would direct readers to the Lost Coast Outpost Article: “On Shaky Financial Ground, the North Coast Co-op is Riled by Internal Strife and an Uncertain Future “In the meantime here’s what the community/Co-op members can do to help.
- Shop as much as possible at the Co-op.
- For the next few months, consider not taking your senior or member discount
- For the next few months consider using cash or check instead of debit or credit card (The Co-op has to pay fees charged by the card companies)
- Become a member
- Invest in B or C shares
Please spread the word and do whatever you can do to save this unique and vital part of our community.
