When we set out to create the Co-op Community Center, we wanted to create a space that represented our stores commitment to the local community and the environment. Many of the building materials, when possible, were reused and incorporated into the new area-including our redwood counter top which was re-purposed from a local water tower.

Paint, kitchen appliances, kitchen cabinets and the glass for the cabinets all came from independently owned businesses in Erie. We kept as much money as possible within the local economy.

We are offering educational classes in a variety of subjects, we have a full-featured demo kitchen for cooking classes, and the room is available to rent for presentations, meetings, classes, yoga, personal celebrations etc. to member-owners and non-member-owners alike.
