Chicago Market Newsletter — January 2022
Be that One Owner
You have power:
- One Owner makes a difference;
- One Owner joins others to build one store;
- One Owner builds one community.
Shares info about Chicago Market to your social media.
(here are suggestions)
- Talks with your friends and neighbors about joining so they too can be One Owner.
(here are tips to get you started)
Not sure how to help? We built a little toolkit for you. Just go to your Get Involved page and help your Co-op move forward quicker. More Owners means a shorter timeline to open, so help your Co-op grow!
Did you know...
...that 35% of the U.S. food supply is wasted? And that waste results in annual greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 42 coal-fired power plants.*
Fortunately, YOU are building a solution:
The average recycling rate of food waste in co-ops is 74%, compared to just 36% in conventional grocery stores.
You and your store will be leaders in food waste reduction!

We love being part of Chicago Market’s community and strengthening those ties by participating in events in our future store’s space."
