Brattleboro Food Co-op Seeks Input on Two Design Projects

The Brattleboro Food Co-op is looking for participants in two focus groups this month to solicit feedback and generate ideas for two endeavors currently underway: the Co-op’s Bulk department is being updated, and a new website is currently being designed.  

The Bulk department focus group will take place on Wednesday the 22nd from 5 to 6pm, and the website group on Thursday the 30th, 4:30-5:30pm.  “We care deeply about our customers and our community; as a consumer-owned cooperative, we have to, because we’re literally owned by them!  We also have a lot of respect for what they’re able to bring to the table,” says Marketing and Community Relations Manager Jon Megas-Russell.  “The more input and involvement we have from our owners and shoppers the better our store will be.”
