Help Open Village Co-Op Market of Williamsville!

Donation protected
Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to contribute to our crowdfunding campaign!

The Village Co-Op Market of Williamsville has signed a lease to build out our Member-Owned Food Co-Op right here in Williamsville NY! Here is a picture of our new home! 480 Evans Street, Williamsville, NY (it's the old BAC for Women) showing a mock-up of the new facade!




Over 10,000 square feet and about 6000 square feet of retail.

Here is a preliminary design of the store layout. In the bottom right corner, you will find the "Community Room" This is where we will hold cooking classes, nutrition classes, kids' story hour and tons of other events. It will also be available for small groups to use for gathering.




As you can imagine it takes a LOT of money to open a physical grocery store.

In late September 2023 we plan on launching a Full Capital Campaign, but to get us through until then we need to raise some additional capital to pay for businesses and services that are helping us along the way to get the store open.

These expenses include architects, designers, consultants, legal etc.

We are looking to raise $100K through donations here on this page. But as noted this is separate from our capital campaign in the fall where we will be raising about $2MM.

Please consider supporting us during our journey to open a member-owned grocery store right here in Williamsville, NY.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely

The Board
Village Co-Op Market of Williamsville
