“This Tuesday is your Co-op’s 14th Birthday!! We want to thank all our Members, both our original members and our many many new members for a wonderful year. While the year was challenging for all, your continued support gave us the opportunity to replace and bring in some new freezers and chillers and reset the store. As a Birthday Celebration we want to offer you 10% off everything in the store on Tuesday 28th (except for red tagged items) and a piece of locally made Birthday Cake from Doodle Buns Bakery. Cake Time begins at 11am and continues till it’s gone!!!”
“We began at the Frontier Plaza on Mosman and 1st Street operating there until April 2012 when we moved to Yelm Ave, co-locating with Gordon’s Garden Center where you find us today.
“A huge shout out to all our wonderful members, Working Members, volunteers, staff, board members, committee members and all the other customers who have supported this dream of a member owned grocery store, the Yelm Food Co-op! Without you this would not have been possible!”
