GrassRoots Cooperative has Closed

October 25, 2016

On Monday evening, October 24, 2016, the GrassRoots Co-op Board of Directors voted unanimously to close our retail operations and begin work to liquidate our cooperative.

This decision was reached after months and years of tenuous financial conditions brought on by increasing competition in the region, slowing sales trends and a tightening cash position.

We are grateful for the support that our GM and staff, our owners and the community have shown our cooperative over its history.  If you have questions, you can email us at
