GreenStar’s Owner Investment Program directly benefits both the Co-op, and its owners, keeping local money local. The more owners invest to help finance our relocation and expansion project, the less the Co-op needs to rely on bank loans. This means better rates and terms for GreenStar on any necessary financing. It also means our owners will financially benefit — we prefer paying dividends to our owners, instead of interest to banks!
We are counting on our owners to help us reach our goal of $2.5 million!
We can’t wait to offer more of the products and services that you’re looking for.
Here are some highlights worth getting excited about:
We’ll grow from 6,500 sq. ft. to 16,500 sq. ft. and offer an expanded, more culturally diverse product line, with more local, organic, and Fair Trade products.
A better shopping experience with wider, accessible aisles and more space for all.
Our new building will accommodate all of our West End operations under one roof! The Classrooms (with a teaching kitchen), our Administrative Offices, and our Central Kitchen will all be part of our new store.
We’ll have a larger deli, complete with smoothies and specialty coffee drinks, and more seating in the café (inside and outside)!
More produce! We’re expanding the department and will offer a wider selection.
The addition of over 40 new jobs, with excellent benefits and pay.
