No! It became Wooster Natural Foods in 2001. We're still the same food co-op, with a new name. And we find that lots more people show here now, because they used to have a misconception that only members could shop at the co-op. Many of us still call the store "the Co-op," and think of it still as Wooster Food Co-op! It began in October, 1971, and it's going strong, and it's still a food co-op!
Do members have to put in volunteer work?
No, that stopped being part of our store, way before we changed our name. Members just pay their $10. annual member fee and get a 10% discount every time they shop.
Are there other discounts, besides the 10% discount for members?
Yes, we have a 10% discount for students with a valid ID and for seniors with a Golden Buckeye Card. And that's every day of the week, not just on one or two days a week!
Do you take custom orders for things that aren't on the shelves when I shop?
Yes, as long as we can get what you want from one of our regular suppliers. You have to bu a full container of the product, as in whatever size box the product's minimum order contains. And then you get a 10% discount, and that's on top of your regular discount, if you're a member, a student, or a senior.
