Proudly Proud to Announce Another Sponsor – Chicago Market – Join Their Proud Independent Owners
Eat Local With Coops
We first told you about Chicago Market about a year ago. Local Beet Contributor (and Chicago Market Board Member) Kelly Hewitt announced her ownership in this newly formed/emerging coop, and told you why she supported it.
I am an owner because I think it will make life as a locavore easier and it will help support the farmers and artisans that work so hard to give us our food. Being an owner of Chicago Market means that I am a partial owner of the grocery store which means that I have a vote in what happens in the store. This is exactly what I have been looking for – a way to own my food choices. I have been lucky enough to be a part of it since Greg Berlowitz founded it last March.
Kelly’s dream is that much closer to becoming reality, as Chicago Market now has more than 650 Owners. Chicago Market says that their reason for being is local food, but they exist to servethe owners - that’s what’s so exciting about a co-operative store. So, sign on. There’s even a payment plan – your Ownership share could cost as little as $25 a month. Ownership grants several benefits including an annual rebate based on your spending; owner-only sales and discounts, and the chance to participate in the direction of the store. You are, of course, also supporting the growth and development of a unique community hub.
We continue to be lucky at the Local Beet with the quality of our sponsors. We are proud to announce Chicago Market as a sponsor. We strongly encourage you to become an owner.
