Community offered a business opportunity

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

In the ‘80s, the search for the new business paradigm shift was going full steam. Businesses yearned to find new and better work models that would reap the most awards. Today, a paradigm shift of sorts is arriving in Los Alamos. The community is being introduced to a type of business that while not new, it is certainly unique in Los Alamos.  

This business comes in the form of a co-op grocery market and everyone in the community can learn more about it during a gala, which will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Holiday Inn Express located in the new Entrada Park.  

The Los Alamos Co-op Market, will be presented during the event, which will include wine, hors d’oeuvres as well as a reading of the play, “Plots,” by local playwright Robert Benjamin. The performance will star Jody Shepard and Larry Gibbons. Additionally, guitarist Greg Schneider will perform classical music.

Next year, the co-op grocery store is expected to open its doors in Entrada Park. Karen Kendall, vice president of the co-op, explained that the store will be a natural food grocery. There will be locally grown, organic foods, traditional health foods, deli and butcher counters.

She said shoppers will spot a lot of goods seen at the Los Alamos Farmers Market.

Besides the store, the co-op is offering memberships.
