MINNEAPOLIS - March 6, 2014 - PRLog -- The South Minneapolis Central-Bryant neighborhood has been chosen as the proposed home of the “Friendship” store, which will be the second location of the Seward Community Cooperative. The opening is currently scheduled for the summer of 2015.  In preparation, Seward Education & Outreach Coordinator, LaDonna Sanders-Redmond says she is working diligently  to ensure future co-op neighbors recognize that cooperatives are for everyone. “It’s important to Seward Co-op that we create the opportunity for everyone who is  interested to understand that the cooperative model offers some of the best social and economic opportunities for families, and the broader community,” Sanders-Redmond said.

The next in a series of community meetings about the Friendship store will take place on Tuesday, March 18th, from 6:00p-8:00p, at the Sabathani Community Center, located at 310 East 38th Street, Minneapolis.  Attendees can expect to hear presentations about Seward Cooperative principles and values, ownership opportunities, store design and its uses.

About Seward Co-op

On August 4, 2012, Seward Co-op celebrated its fortieth anniversary. Way back in 1972, when the co-op took shape, few people could have imagined it would grow to be the thriving community center and source of healthful food it is today. From a few working volunteer members, Seward Co-op ownership has grown to more than 11,000 owners. Store sales were $30.5 million in 2013 and the co-op now employs 230 people. What’s most important, though, is that amidst great success and profitability, the co-op has remained true to its mission, never losing site of its commitment to its owners and the greater community. In its lifetime, Seward Co-op has created a vision of great food, and cooperation.  It is devoted to sustaining a healthy community that has:

Equitable economic relationships; Positive environmental impacts; and
Inclusive, socially responsible practices.
