FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER
Greetings co-op members & shoppers,
The holiday season is upon us, the store is bustling with holiday shopping and countless local offerings! It is also a great time to express gratitude. Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Meeting in October and to everyone who voted in our elections. We will announce our new board members at our December meeting.
Our board, our staff, and our management thanks you for being part of Placerville Food Co-op. We are grateful for our co-op family—for the kindness we get from our shoppers, to offering support during challenging times, and for the continued dedication to working together for a sustainable community. The fabric of the PFC community is strong and we are truly grateful.
Supporting your local food co-op gives you much to be proud of: we are a fair community employer; we recycle, compost, and donate food to reduce waste; we have food for every body: we support local vendors and farmers; and we operate independently and democratically. These tenets differentiate us from other grocers, other corporations, and most other businesses.
Plus, no other grocers in Placerville make food from scratch like we do. From breakfast burritos to hot soup to our new to-go meals, there’s simply nothing like it. Our food service staff put in countless hours preparing healthful and delicious food for you. We have product standards that clearly outline our commitment to the highest quality food at the best price.
Thank you all for supporting us, and in turn supporting all of the small businesses, farmers, and vendors we purchase from - it is truly a cooperative effort. Cheers to 2019!
Remember, Owner Discount day will be on the 10th of each month beginning in January!
As always, please contact me with any questions, suggestions, or comments.
FROM THE BOARD
As the year comes to a close we reflect on what has transpired over the last 12 months. For the first time, the co-op had a record profitable year! For the first 6 years of operation, we didn't do much better than breaking even, so this is an exciting milestone. We've seen lots of changes over the last year, many of which are based on decisions made by your elected Board of Directors. Of course, we have to give credit where credit is due. Thanks to our wonderful staff and management who make this place tick, and many thanks to you, for your loyalty and patronage! As we transition into the new year the board is seeking member-owners to participate in our Long Range Planning Committee. If you are interested in the direction the co-op is going please contact email@example.com. We value your input and are enthusiastic about our continued success in 2019!
At the co-op, we know that our relationship with owners and shoppers is key to our success. We take pride in the service we provide and continually look for ways to improve it.
There are many ways you can share your ideas or questions with us: • Website: use the Contact Us button to send us a message. • Phone: give us a call anytime! • Social media: Facebook, Yelp, Trip Advisor, Google and Instagram. • In person: chat with us about what you love and/or how we can do better. • Comment cards: request a product, raise a concern, cheer, or ask a question.
We kindly ask that if you have an issue you would like resolved, please contact us before posting on social media. We rely on social media as advertising and one negative review can alter our rating and have a negative impact on (y)our co-op. More importantly, we rely on your feedback to know where we need to make improvements.
We value your feedback and we look forward to hearing more of it!
COOPERATOR OF THE MONTH
Help us congratulate Victoria! She works in our admin offices so you may not see her on the floor but her peers recognized her this month!
Our staff had wonderful things to say about her: "She works so hard and is a joy to work with, she always covers the cashiers when needed!"
"She's rocking the admin office and is a great worker!"
