As you can see by all the light - our new energy-saving Solatubes make our store's interior bright as day!
Our pace is starting to pick up at 4001 South Lamar! Bill, the Store Manager, has been busy receiving all sorts of orders - from aisle signs to stoves, we're starting to see our store come together! Everything, from metro racks to paint colors to tape dispensers has been decided, ordered and is in the process of being installed. These next several weeks are going to be a flurry of activity as we get set to open mid-September!
As a community owned cooperative, we have been paying very close attention to our budget and working within our means to give our owners, customers and staff the best store we can possibly make. From sturdy used industrial mixers to state of the art energy-saving Solatubes (which captures natural light at the roof level, and transfers it indoors using the world’s most reflective material to help us reduce energy consumption), we've worked hard to be thoughtfully thrifty.
And remember - we are NOT RAISING PRICES! Since we will be able to buy larger quantities customers will see prices on some items go down!
Looking forward to seeing you all soon and serving up the Popcorn Tofu to our new neighbors!
