There's no question that Weavers Way qualifies. If you're not already shopping at a food co-op, I imagine you're thinking, "Gee, that not how it is at the Pathmark!" Now perhaps you have a sense of what you're missing.
- The people that worked there were excited about and valued good food; they were not just employees.
- The co-op had some kind of gathering place.
- The store was stocked differently from a conventional grocery store, but was just as well organized.
- The produce section of the co-op was well-stocked and well-labeled, and the items were not pre-bagged “for convenience” in a plastic bag.
