Member-Ownership Event with Live Music and Hot Supper!

Save the date: Saturday, March 12, 5-7 at the Shutesbury Athletic Club! Amherst Community Co-op is holding a fun membership event for Shutesbury, Leverett, and Pelham residents (and beyond). The event will feature music from bluegrass fiddler Eric Lee and Friends, food, fellowship, and everything that you need to know about the co-op.

Amherst Community Co-op will be a full-service worker and community owned grocery store to be located in Amherst. We don't have a location yet, but we do have nearly 180 member-owners on our way to our first major milestone of 300. At that point, we will commission a market study and business plan in order to settle on the best location to serve the Amherst, Shutesbury, Leverett, Pelham, and surrounding communities.

Not to be confused with the late All Things Local, Amherst Community Co-op will offer one-stop grocery shopping. The business, which will be owned by the community and the people who work at the store, will be guided by principles of access to high-quality affordable food, social justice, living wages, and community engagement.

Food will be available at the event, but folks are welcome to bring a dish to share. Oh, and don't forget your checkbook if you haven't already joined. (Both members and non-members are welcome at the event!) Folks who sign up as member-owners at this event will receive a free Amherst Community Co-op canvas tote bag, made in the USA!

Please RSVP to Questions are always welcomed.

See you at the Shutesbury Athletic Club! (282 Wendell Rd, Shutesbury, MA 01072)
