When the Co-op first opened in 1971, the first all-volunteer crew running the store was also all women. Since that time, women have played an integral role at People's: as shoppers, as vendors, as farmers, as Member-Owners, as Hands-on-Owners, as Board members, as staff, and as a part of our community. We wouldn't have a co-op without them.
Today, we're taking an extra moment to thanks all the women who have had (and continue to have) a hand in building this community. Thank you.
