Like all things, the Willy Street Co-op started out small and simple. You can follow our growth from the beginning to present day and get to know us better as you read our Co-op History.
Since the move to the current location, membership has more than tripled to include over 20,000 members. The number of employees has grown to around 161 (about half are full-time) and annual sales are approaching $20 million dollars. During this time there has been an emphasis on not only addressing the needs of the membership, but also increasing staff satisfaction including meeting the Cooperative Grocer Information Network (CGIN) Living Wage for all employees.
The democratically-elected Board of Directors continues to steer the future of the Willy Street Co-op. As the Co-op continues to strengthen ties with vendors and neighborhood, community, and cooperative organizations, it remains an economically viable business. Thanks to many years of support from the membership, the Co-op is a vibrant community institution and a model of cooperative success.
We are open 7:30am - 9:30pm daily
