Food Store Alternative Coming to Cedar Falls
Wednesday Aug. 19—Local citizens who have wanted to own a piece of the grocery store where they shop may soon have their chance.
Tom Wickersham is serving as the board chair of a new food co-op that is planning to open a store in Cedar Falls. As a co-op, anyone who wishes to buy a $200 share may do so, although everyone is welcome to shop at the store even if they don’t own shares.
The full-service store will emphasize locally produced and wholesome food and will also include a deli. The co-op’s goal is to have 1,000 member-owners before the doors are opened and they are well on their way towards that number.
We wish Tom success with this exciting venture.
