Dear Member-Owners and Community Shoppers:

The Board of Directors and General Manager of Hub City Co-op are writing to you with an important update about the Co-op.

In order to conserve cash, the General Manager, in consultation with the Board, has closed the hot bar effective after the meal service on Friday, October 12. Why?

The Co-op has three main sources of funds to operate the store from: (1) sales from shoppers; (2) investment from owners; (3) external financing.
The Co-op has not met sales projections since its opening in April 2016. Despite efforts, the 2018 sales, except for one week, have been consistently lower than 2017 sales.
The Board led the ownership in several successful fund-raising events over the years and secured “quiet angel” gifts from the public campaigns to ensure the store had cash reserves to remain open in anticipation of new downtown residential units opening in 2018.
The Co-op is reaching the end of cash reserves and will soon have to close operations unless there are very strong sales of existing inventory and additional contributions to cash reserves.
We appreciate your continued support! If you would like to be in touch for further information, please contact the Board via e-mail at hubcitycoopboard@gmail.com

Thank you for your words of support and encouragement to staff and Board members. We'll use this space to respond to some of your questions. Question 1: Why is the Co-op in danger of closing? Answer: Co-ops function as cooperative businesses, and like other businesses, co-ops must have enough revenue (cash coming in) to cover the expense of operating (paying employees, buying goods to sell, paying utilities). If revenue from sales is inadequate to cover costs, there are only two choices: cut costs or seek additional revenue in the form of investment, while working to increase sales. Store staff have worked to cut costs and increase sales, and the Board has worked to secure substantial additional investments since opening, and still, sales are low. ... See MoreSee Less

Produce Department

T

he Produce Department offers a wide variety of fresh, high quality, primarily local, fruit and vegetables when available. Locally sourced produce is available on seasonal growing basis and when we are unable to obtain local product, we will substitute with primarily all-natural and organic items when possible.  Be sure to check in often to see what local, new and seasonal products we are carrying.

Our goal is to support as many local farms as possible while maintaining our high quality standards.

Eating locally can benefit the environment, boost freshness and flavor, and support the vibrant network of farms in our region. The co-op labels foods local when they are produced in SC and NC, and regional when produced in GA, FL, and TN.
