Meet Our New General Manager

Get ready to welcome our next General Manager!

We are extremely excited to share that Ahren Grunow has accepted our offer to become the Co-op’s next general manager. Ahren comes to us with years of experience in Co-op management, with his most recent experience as Fresh Category Manager across three Mississippi Market locations in the Twin Cities.

He impressed us with his solid track record of pursuing personal and professional growth throughout his career. And he inspired us with his genuine enthusiasm for our Co-op and the Cook County community overall.

Ahren, his wife Laura and their son Ethan are looking forward to relocating to Grand Marais as soon as possible so that he can begin his new role on November 15th.

Stop in on November 12th to say thanks and goodbye to Jennifer, and get ready to welcome Ahren!

We’ll be serving up coffee & cupcakes (while supplies last)!
