Good Food Co-op merger vote coming up
Rochester's Good Food Store Co-op and the La Crosse People’s Food Co‐op are preparing for upcoming member votes of a proposal to merge the two cooperatives.
Voting will take place in August. Ballots should arrive in mailboxes by about Aug. 1 and voting will wrap up by Aug. 15.
This proposed merger would clear the way for a plan to move and expand the Good Food Store to anchor a downtown Rochester development.
Many members turned out for meetings this week to speak for and against the plan.
