This year, as usual, The London Co-op Store will be closing at 3pm on December 24th and 31st, and will be closed on December 25th and 26th, and January 1st. This year (2011), we’ll also be closed on Tuesday, December 27th, to give our wonderful managers a day off for the statutory holiday.
Year-end inventory will be on Monday, January 2nd, 2012, starting at 10 AM and continuing until we’re done. All members are warmly encouraged to come and help out for any length of time they can, starting whenever they can. You know the saying:
“Many hands make lighter work!”
Let’s kick off the New Year in the spirit of cooperation — 2012 is, after all, the International Year of Co-operatives!
Well, it may not be as rounded a number as last year’s 40, so we’re not planning a big party, but 41 is still a lot of years to be around, don’t you think? So let’s celebrate the strong co-op viability and spirit by spreading the word far and wide!
Tell all your friends: “Hey, did you know there’s a natural food co-op in London Ontario that’s been around for 41 years now? It’s one of the oldest food co-ops in Ontario! Check it out at LondonFoodCoop.org and in person at 621 Princess Ave, just east of Adelaide.”
If you’re not already a member, come and do a trial shop to see what a great place this is to shop for all your organic, natural, fair trade, eco-friendly, socially responsible, healthy foods, household cleaners, and health and beauty products. In the process, you’ll discover that we’re also a friendly community of people who care about the kinds of things that really matter, and take to heart our motto:
Food for People. Not for Profit.
