Did you know that the Co-op is run by wonderful people like Mike?
Mike helps unload, price and package all deliveries that arrive at the store every Wednesday.
He has volunteered at the Co-op for 4 years and really enjoys the company of the other volunteers. Mike says that “the other volunteers are all terrific people whose company is a pleasure to spend time with. The customers and vendors are also friendly and personable so along with the volunteers this creates a relaxing and comforting atmosphere.”
Mike said his go-to store in Vernon was Superstore, however, in the last 4 years he has started shopping there less and less. In turn, Mike has started shopping more at Monashee Community Co-op. He said “the discount (10% – as a volunteer) on my purchases is certainly an incentive as well as not having to drive to Vernon. I also think I am eating healthier with the organic purchases and also with the information gleaned from the other volunteers and customers.”
Thank you Mike for all your hard work and your welcoming smile when people come into the store.
