From the GM – February 2019

Dear Karma Members,

There is a lot going on at the co-op lately! Despite the freezing rain and snowy days, it’s been busy around the store! In addition to ringing folks through, we’ve been busy ordering and stocking the shelves as well as finding new and exciting products for you to enjoy. For example, sometime next week, we’ll have 4 flavours of kombucha on tap for you to buy in bulk! We’re also waiting on our very first delivery of some exciting new package free body care products. We can’t wait to hear what you think of them.

I wanted to say a very special and big THANK YOU to Mary Ellen Irving and Henny Markus for digging us out of the snow in the big snowfall last week. It took them a whopping 3.5 hours each to clear out the snow from our lot, entrances and walkways. They expertly piled the snow so as to not impede traffic and to also give us some snow hills for sliding down. You two are heroes. And thank you Mary Ellen for keeping our grounds kept and swept all year round!!

You may have noticed a new face around the store. Leah joined the Karma staff team in early January. You may recognize her from the Toronto farmer’s market scene, where she works for Monforte dairy. Got a cheese question? Ask Leah. Welcome to the Karma team Leah! You may have also noticed a bit less of Robbie. Robbie has returned to school part time so is working less at the store. She will be continuing on in her duties as bulk purchaser though. We wish you the best of luck in your studies Robbie!

Yours co-operatively,

Talia McGuire
