Working Members

On the back page is  a column that addresses a very critical need for your Co-op’s continued success – that is the need for more Working Members to help run the store. You may have noticed recently that there are times when there is only one of 2 people working in the store on a shift. That person has to be cashier, stocker, order receiver, telephone answerer, customer service rep and do anything else that comes up. So, please if you can find the time to lend a hand or know someone who could, talk to one of the staff members.

There is not only the satisfaction that comes from serving our local community with high quality, nutritious and yummy foods, Working Members receive some great benefits!

Great opportunity for a someone to keep the store shiny and clean!

Anyone who finds a volunteer who is willing to be the person who does regular cleaning of the store will get a

$100 Gift Card!

And the cleaner volunteer will get one, too!

Both cards will be issued after the volunteer has worked for 3 months. If the volunteer wants to become a Working Member, they will receive those additional benefits as well, like 2o% discounts on purchases, Buy Club privileges and a La Gitana VIP card.
