Chicago Market Newsletter - May 2018

Our Future Home...and the Next Steps

Hey Chicago Market Fans! GUESS WHAT? We now have a site to build our co-op grocery store!

Chicago Market has entered into a lease with the Chicago Transit Authority to build out the exquisite Gerber Building at the Wilson 'L' Station at Broadway and Wilson. Read all about our fabulous future location and other fun tidbits here.

Speaking of the future...here’s what’s next!

1. Priority #1 is to grow our Chicago Market community of Owners from our current 1,142 to 2,000 by the end of 2018. If you’re ready to become an Owner, join us today! All you current Owners, please share this newsletter with your like-minded friends and associates and encourage them to join you.

2. Also underway are efforts to secure the funds necessary to pay the designers and construction professionals to build our grocery store. Owners have an important role to play in this endeavor – become an Owner and we'll tell you all about Owner Loan Campaign Info Sessions. 

3. When we meet our goals in #1 and #2, we can start to build our big, bright, beautiful Co-op in early 2019.

Check out the infographic that details every step along the way.

Let’s go… Grow. Fund. Build.
