Opening day at The Mustard Seed was rather incredible – a dream for so many of us was becoming reality. On opening weekend we had around 2,000 shoppers – both members and those curious about the Co-op – come check us out. Since then there has been a steady flow of shoppers, and we already have regulars! Our member count has jumped from 1,220 when we opened our doors last Friday, January 24 to over 1,330 today. We will always be taking new memberships at the store – read more about the benefits of membership here.
If you are already a member and have not picked up your member card yet – please come by the store and talk to either one of our volunteer Co-op Ambassadors (grey apron) or staff (yellow apron) to get your card & passport.
Thanks to local photographer Jeff Tessier for capturing more of the excitement from our opening day in these photos. We’ll see you at the Co-op!
Here are a few more photos from later on the opening weekend by Emma Cubitt.
