The buzz is all about our competition these days because local products have become a focus at big box stores. Co-ops like ours, who’ve always focused on local, are losing the money that the “big boys” are raking in. In these trying times, it’s ever more important that our community-owned store has community support.

Hello! Apparently it is fun and fine to fantasize. I fantasize that a Common Ground co-op will come to North Carolina. Fine right? P.s. Thanks for the water fountain!
Hehehe! We hope we one day can expand and we are glad to know you want to bring the co-op home with you! Keep dreaming, we hope we can make them come true!
I love this place. Love Love Love. We sometimes shop here. I love the dried fruit collections!
Oh! Dried fruit, especially in the bulk section, it is delightful. Several of the staff really enjoy the dried mangos!
Please carry more than one kind of Fluoride toothpaste (especially Tom's). Thanks!
Thank you! We will look into this! We currently carry a few types of Fluoride toothpastes and put out more signage about Fluoride. Thank you for the feedback!
Nitro cold brew coffee ( I've had Stumptown before in a can).
We will look into this product! Check out our beverage case for a product similar to this!
Vincent in the Deli is great!
