Many of us won’t be able to gather with family and friends this holiday season, but one way we can still remain connected is by exchanging gifts. Purchasing these gifts from worker co-ops, meanwhile, is an opportunity for our members to support each other at a time when, despite the resilience they’ve shown, many are facing the same struggles as traditional small businesses. It’s a way of living out the sixth co-op principle, cooperation among co-ops.
What’s more, supporting fellow worker co-ops during this time is easily done with the use of our “Solidarity Shopping” mall, a coast to coast collection of the goods and services offered by our members. From chocolate to coffee to bicycles to art, we’ve got something for everyone on your list.
If you’re a member who’s not already listed on our site, now’s the time to join. Whatever it is you’re selling, and whether you’re offering it online, in person, or both, we want to get the word out – and doing so is as easy as completing this form. And, as always, we welcome your feedback on how we can improve the experience for both buyers and sellers. Just contact our Communications and Member Services Manager Kaye Grant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
