After five years of work, the Los Alamos Co-op Market was able to officially open its doors to the community during a grand opening celebration Saturday morning.
VaLynn Purvis of Party 2 Go set up a Jolly Jumper outside the store and vendors sold everything from cinnamon bread to scented lotions.
Despite all the festivities, the employees of the market seemed to just take pleasure in the fact that the store has now officially opened.
“It’s been satisfying. We’ve been waiting for this for five years … it’s been a long wait,” Tim Morrison, front-end manager, said.
“It’s been a lot of work but it’s definitely worthwhile,” he added.
