It's time for an update on the progress the South Philly Food Co-op is making on our attempt to open a cooperatively owned grocery store in South Philadephia. I could write a long missive about how we've been setting some goals for the next six months and working with professionals to write a business plan and do a market analysis and feasibility study. But why spend all that time when the good folks at Naked Philly did it for us in a recent story about us! Check out that link for some details on our immediate goals for the next 6 months, including reference to our own magic number of 250 - the number of member-owner households we want to have before we start the process of looking for a location. We'll be sharing more about our goals, next steps and accomplishments at our first member meeting on October 17 at The Church of the Trinity, 2300 S. 18th Street (on 18th Street between Wolf and Ritner). You can sign up to be a member-owner on the spot and participate in the meeting. The agenda for the meeting is here.
