The Co-op needs your support!

The Pullman Good Food Co-op is working to finance the purchase of theBishop Blvd. location, but desperately needs the Pullman community’s help! The Co-op has only 60 days to raise $500,000 for the down payment and other immediate costs, so our members have a very limited-time offer to directly invest in the Co-op to make this purchase a reality.

 

Can we rely on you to help make it happen?

 

Visit our website today to learn about the different ways you can support theCo-op and help finance the store, including capital stock purchases,which offer the potential for annual dividends once we open our doors (restricted to PGFC members that live in Washington).


 



Join us for an Open House on May 16 from 6-8 p.m.!

All PGFC member-owners, as well as the rest of the Pullman community, are invited to come check out our future location of the Pullman Good Food Co-op, learn how you can help Start the Store, and get updates from the PGFC Board of Directors.

 

If you're interested in attending, please let us know at hello@pullmangoodfoodcoop.com, or indicate your interest on our Facebook event
