The George Street Co-op is a non-profit natural foods store owned and run by its members. We sell vegetarian foods with the greatest nutritional value possible, and only minimal processing or additives. Everyone is welcome to shop at the Co-op and choose from our excellent selection of fresh organic produce, bulk foods, vitamins & herbs, body care and earth-friendly products, gifts, and more.
A small paid staff and our members perform the daily work at the store. We emphasize good service to all customers, members as well as non-members. Members, however, enjoy greater benefits like substantial product discounts, pride of ownership and community involvement (see more of the benefits of membership here). Products are priced to cover the cost of operating the store, and all profits are reinvested back into the Co-op.
The Co-op is owned by its members, who help choose store policy and vote for the Board of Directors. The Board governs the Co-op, selects the staff management, and decides on overall strategy. There are also a number of store committees, which each focus on different functions such as membership, orientations, and outreach.
