Over five hundred Terra Organics subscribers took the time to share their feedback by taking our New Year survey. The lucky winner will be announced and contacted next week. We are deeply grateful for the enormous response to our survey and will now begin to analyze the results which we will publish for you all to see as soon as possible. For those of you who very thoughtfully offered us great ideas to improve the business, or had questions that require a personal answer from us, hang tight- we will be contacting you shortly.
We are excited to help spread the word that the Tacoma Food Co-op board has reached a deal for the Neighborhood Market location on 6th Ave. A transition period from now until July 31st will allow the current owner to sell his remaining inventory while the co-op begins to build theirs and hire the necessary staff to begin full operations by early August.
The Tacoma Food Co-Op is also looking to hire an experienced Food Co-op General Manager very soon. Interested candidates can send their inquiries and resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org. And, if you are able to volunteer your time to help with fundraising, event tabling, marketing, or administrative duties contact email@example.com.
