From the GM—December 2019

It’s that time of year again and we’ve been busy getting ready to keep you stocked over the holidays! We have some exciting things planned for you this month in preparation for the holidays, including: Karma’s One of a Kind Holiday Market organized by Karma’s Social Events Committee; a DIY Spa Gift Making workshop; and pre-bookings for holiday tourtieres (including veggie pies!) and turkeys. To better serve you, we will have extended hours over the Christmas weekend (December 21 and 22) and will be open on Monday, December 23. Please note our holiday hours below.

We’ve got everything for your holiday entertaining needs, but Karma is also an amazing place to get your holiday gift shopping done. As many of you have already noticed, the Darn Tough Socks are on display ????. We’ve also got some amazing, quality beauty care products; plenty of accessories and package-free gift options for the zero-waster on your list; and of course, an array of delicious edibles perfect for any gift. When in doubt, we also have Karma gift certificates available so you can gift your love for your Co-op! ❤️ Don’t forget the beeswax Hanukkah candles and fair trade organic gelt!

I hope you have all had a chance to view the mural that was recently painted on Karma’s east wall. Karma was approached by the Laneway Project to have a mural painted free of charge (!), by professional artist Kayla Buium. The mural is the culmination of musician Scott Helman‘s multi-week engagement campaign with his fan network of people in their teens and early 20s around climate change. As most of you who walk up Karma Lane know, that wall has been the target of much unwanted and unattractive tagging so a bright and engaging mural is most welcome! We hope you love the change!

Happy Holidays from the Karma team!
