JOIN US IN THE QUEST TO BRING A GROCERY CO-OP
TO LONG BEACH CALIFORNIA
LET'S GO GET OUR STORE!!!!
We have signed a MOU on a beautiful potential location!
After five years and twenty lease negotiations LBGC has reached a deal with the owner of Beacon Pointe, a new affordable housing complex in the downtown/midtown area of Long Beach. The MOU is for a 6200 sqft, ground floor space which is now unoccupied. There will be ample covered dedicated parking (23 spaces). Accessibility was a very important feature we took into consideration for a potential space and this space delivers. The space is just a few steps away from the Anaheim Metro stop, it also has a bus stop in front and it sits in front of a brand new dedicated bike lane. This is the opportunity we have been working toward. The first phase of the MOU requires us to reach at least 800 member/owners in the next four months.(We currently have 386 member/owners) The owners of the property have graciously given our community this opportunity and it is up to us to make it happen. Let’s show the world what our Long Beach community is all about. THIS IS THE OFFICIAL CALL TO ACTION!

What is a community food co-op?
A community food co-op is a consumer-owned cooperative—that means if you join, you own it and so do your neighbors and friends. When you make an investment in Long Beach Grocery Co-op, you receive financial benefits. You also become part of something bigger: a group of consumers joining together to grow a business that meets their needs. In return, the Co-op makes this promise: We pledge to serve our community with quality products and honest information. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community.
Long Beach Grocery Co-op will be a full-service grocery market. Co-ops are founded on the belief that we can achieve greater results by working together than we can by working alone. We are a consumer co-op: a business that is voluntarily owned and controlled by the people who use it.
