Menomonie Market Staff Celebrates Co-op Spirit Week
With so much hard work related to the potential merging of our co-op with Just Local Food Co-op going on behind the scenes the last two years, it’s been exciting for our staff to finally have the opportunity to talk openly with owners about it and hear your thoughts on partnering together to expand our reach further in the Chippewa Valley. Whether our ownership voted yes or no, our staff knew this election would be a big moment in our co-op’s history. To celebrate, our Sunshine Club decided to host Co-op Spirit Week from September 9th-12th. Each day staff were asked to don a different theme, and boy, did they show up! We had lots of participation each day. These were the themes if you happened to shop any of those days and noticed some wild outfits:
THURSDAY: Wacky Tacky Day
FRIDAY: Department Color Day
SATURDAY: Decades Day
SUNDAY: MMFC & JLF Pride Day
