I love this store because there are so many vegan "convenience" foods. There is a hot deli and a cold deli loaded with goodies. They sell a lot of vegan cosemetics that I otherwise have to purchase online--which isn't the greatest when you need to see with your own eyes if it's the color you want. They also sell a lot of food items that I can't find anywhere else. I consider this the vegan version of a grocery store!
One annoying thing is that they use a lot of plastic bags and provide wet wipes (which I did actually see being used) for snooty people that don't want to touch the handle of a cart that someone else has. Those things never degrade! Why not offer a bottle spritzer of vinegar instead?
Also, get rid of the meat section! What a gross thing to see in the middle of shopping!
I'm from the East Coast, but whenever I'm in town visiting my friend, we make sure to hit up the Co-op to stock up on groceries and goodies I can't get back home.
Great selection, Good location, Lots of vegan items
SELLS MEAT, Not environmentally friendly, Parking is a nightmare
