Suwanee Whole Life Co-op -- Additional location in Suwanee
(There's a lot of information and this will be 1 of many emails I will send out regarding the additional location. I don't want to overload you all with too much info at one time but PLEASEREAD!)
I'm very excited to announce that we are extending our roots and will have a 2nd location in Suwanee! I'm hoping to have first pick up at this location mid-March (more details to come). Tanya, from Cultured Traditions just built a new commercial kitchen in the Plaza at Suwanee Station and offered us some space to host pick up at her location. Pick up day at this location will be Thursdays from 1 pm to 3 pm.
New Ordering Website coming soon! We will have 2 separate market websites soon. I am currently creating the Buford site and the future market website will be www.buford.locallygrown.net This site is NOTACTIVE and once we have duplicated our current site I will let everyone know when to start ordering on this site. If you already know that you will continue to pick up in Buford, you can go ahead and create an account on the www.buford.locallygrown.net market site. I will transfer over your membership status. You will continue to order on the Suwanee.locallygrown.net website until the new Buford site active.
Where is the additional location? The Plaza at Suwanee Station 1300 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Suite 1104 Suwanee, Georgia 30024 *After turning into Suwanee Station from Peachtree Industrial, take the first left, then we are on the right in the fourth space (Suite 1104). Near Sherry's Fabrics
Can I order on Buford market site and pick up in Suwanee? No, Buford location pick up will remain Tuesdays from 1:30 pm to 6:30 pm. You must pick up from the market you are ordering. I will not bring items not picked up on Tuesday to the Suwanee pick up.
Will you have the same vendors at the additional location? Right now, all vendors except B&G Farms, Rocky Acres, and Wagon Wheel will list on the new Suwanee market. B&G Farms, Rocky Acres, and Wagon Wheel will continue to be on the Buford website, so no change at current location. Also, Nature's Garden Express will remain at the Buford market but we will have Fresh Harvest, www.freshharvestga.com , as our produce box vendor at new location in Suwanee. Fresh Harvest will be offering a co-op discounted organic produce basket. More details about produce baskets coming soon.
Will I have to pay another membership if I switch over to ordering/pick up in Suwanee? No, there will be no changes to your membership.
What is the name of the new market location? Starting in March the location in Suwanee will be Suwanee Whole Life Co-op and our current location in Buford will be named Buford Locally Grown. I've been wanting to change our name for some time to represent that we are in Buford to make it easier for folks to locate us. I want everyone to know that I have no intention of shutting down the Buford location. I will continue to grow and expand both markets!
Please send me any other questions you have! I will have more information soon. Thank you all for your support!! Nora
