Masks Required in-store as of Saturday, January 15th

From the Co-op Safety Team
Masks are required for everyone in the Coop for the next 30 days.
Vaccinated or unvaccinated – no exceptions.*

We’re tired of wearing them just like you are.
But we do it because it keeps the store open and the community safer.

We need you to do the same.
So put on your mask or grab one on your way into the store.
We provide them free of charge by the window in the entrance.
If you won’t wear a mask, we need you to utilize curbside pick-up and refrain from visiting the store.

We all want to get back to the things we love to do.
Help us get there.
