Our newest video describes the problem our community in Northeast Greensboro has faced since the Winn-Dixie grocery store left our neighborhood in the mid-1990’s. For the past three years we have been working hard to solve this problem ourselves, by opening a full service grocery store that we, the residents of the community, own and operate as a cooperative business. This project has gained national, and even international, attention as other communities facing similar problems look to us as a model for community-based economic development.

Please take a few minutes and watch the videos in this series to get an understanding of the problems in front of us, how the cooperative economic model offers unique benefits to solve them, and how everyone – those immediately in the community, those in the greater Greensboro community, and even those around the United States and world – can play a vital role making this a success here and elsewhere.
