Go Big, or Go Home

Go Big, or Go Home

With an established presence on Main Street in East Aurora, more than 600 member-owners and a twice-weekly Mini Market, we’re often asked why we don’t just “open small.” It’s an understandable question, but one which we must respond to by saying, “Like a fine wine, it takes time.”

The Co-op Process

Like the grapes on the vine that require nurturing, support and time to mature, so too does a start-up cooperative market. Both tasks are a process.

The process we’re following is based on a proven development model established by industry experts. We’ve aligned ourselves with top consultants to ensure we are following best practices.  We’ve done a market study, created a business plan, attended conferences, applied for grants (and received $10,000 last fall) and trained a legion of volunteers. In short, not only are we 100 percent confident in the viability of this enterprise, we are equally determined to “go big or go home.”
