People’s Co+op store in Portland, Oregon underwent a full store renovation in July 2022. The store is reopening their doors to customers with a fresh layout and look on August 3rd after an eight day closure. Planning for the project was prioritized to facilitate easier shopping for member-owners and customers and to ensure safety for the staff. The improvements include re-finishing of the entire concrete floor, new retail shelving, full department resets, and a fresh coat of paint! To celebrate, a grand re-opening Street Fair will take place on August 10th from 1:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. Festivities will include live music, guest speakers, a BIPOC craft fair and the farmer’s market.
People’s Co+op began in 1970 and currently serves over 4,500 member-owners with a focus on ethically sourced, as local as possible, and all-vegetarian options.
