Why do you enjoy working at the Co-op?

Working at the Co-op for me feeds a part of my “just cause”, being a part of something bigger than myself, something that serves and supports our local community. I also enjoy working to support an inclusive work environment and empower our young staff, many of whom the Co-op is their first job.
