Sad News - Closing the Co-op

 

            The Board of Directors, officers and active members of the Bay Ridge Food Cooperative, Inc. (the Co-op) have collectively made the difficult decision to suspend further operations and formally close and dissolve the Co-op in Spring 2019.  Toward that end, the Board has called for a final annual meeting of members on Tuesday, March 26th, 7:00 pm at the Union Church of Bay Ridge, 7915 Ridge Blvd. This will also constitute a special meeting of members called for the purpose of approving dissolution.   If approved, a 3-person Dissolution Committee will be named at the meeting.  We ask that you consider attending. 

            We are saddened to convey this news but feel that the Co-op can no longer be sustained as membership involvement has dwindled and membership growth has been minimal.  However, we are proud of our accomplishments since our incorporation in 2009.   We hope that many of you have fond memories of shopping at the Co-op and of the community that we created during its existence.

            We would like to thank all those members who have contributed their time, effort and expertise over the years.  We could not have done it without you!

 

Best Regards,

 

Board of Directors and 

Membership Committee of the

Bay Ridge Food Cooperative, Inc.
