La Crosse Remodel Update #13

We are getting SO CLOSE TO THE END!

Friends, we are feeling so excited! After several weeks of limited offerings, we are getting SO CLOSE TO THE END! It is just a couple more weeks until you can get all the delicious baked goods you’ve been missing, get fresh bratwurst sandwich, try a healthy made-to-order protein bowl, or scoop up goodies at the hot buffet.

We can hardly wait…What about you? What do you think is going to be your new favorite co-op food?

If you shopped this weekend (hot tip: #flashsale) you probably noticed that the beer and wine department has been put back together. We’re in the process of moving our hand-selected varieties to their final homes. Come peruse Patrick’s fine collection!

This week we are starting to put the renovated deli back together. New floors, ceilings and paint come first, then we begin to put the cases in place and set up the area for service.
Tuesday is the final day of the salad bar in the produce department. Thank you, Frankie S, for serving us delicious salads for many years! We are super glad you are sticking around the produce department, and we hope that you’ll provide lots of good advice to our deli when they take over salad bar duties in a few weeks!

(Head up to Hackberry’s to get your soup and salad fix – You can take it to go or sit and eat with us!)

On Thursday we will welcome MOSES friends and fans back to La Crosse for the 30th annual conference. We are VERY PROUD to be serving Co-op’s Own foods to special events at the conference. , And we want to once again congratulate Joyce Ford and Jim Riddle, owners of Blue Fruit Farm, as the Organic Farmers of the Year. Thank you for your decades of organic leadership!

Put the weekend of April 4-7 on your calendar, to celebrate the Grand Reopening of People’s Food Co-op La Crosse.

I’ll leave you with a few thoughts of warm weather: Think of flowering echinacea and other pollinators. Think of eating on a park bench next to the bike parking outside the co-op. Think of enjoying a cold kombucha under the canopy, with your kids playing at the picnic table. This is the place we’re creating for you. It is going to be a great year!
