Default Littleton Food Co-op now open!

The food co-op in Littleton is now open for those 'scoping out' the area or visiting. We checked it out yesterday and found it to be quite pleasing....DH was especially thrilled - He hasn't been able to find Wheatena in the Shaw's up here and he loves it.....The co-op carries it! Made him a very happy camper

I have got to check out the co-op. I heard (very reliable source) they have a large specialty beer section for those that are into that.

Concord NH the town that rocks the cradle rules the state. Oh please Exeter? Exeter is one of the snobbiest towns in the state along with New London and Hanover. New London is the geriatric nursing home for the rich and not so famous.

We liked it - very clean, the produce was MUCH fresher than at Shaw's. There's a little area with tables and chairs and coffee, so you can sit and chat, make out a list, whatever. Everyone was very friendly. I think the "official grand opening" is later in the month, but it is open now. I don't drink beer, so I can't comment on that section of the store

I have always liked the idea of some tables and chairs but Shaws management has balked and said they couldn't do it and would need a special license I don't understand we have chairs at the pharmacy so I don't understand the difference Since Shaws is now owned by a huge chain some of the management decisions are really dumb

They need to lower their prices or they will NOT make it.

Shaws has very high prices for many food items compared to other grocery stores and wholesale stores IMO.

The Co-op. I found them very expensive, and their selection wasn't much different from Shaw's.

Yes, I agree (and the Courier did an article showing that the Littleton Shaw's has some of the highest prices among Shaw's stores in the state), but the Co-op was higher for most items. Part of the reason there was such enthusiasm about having a second grocery store in Littleton was that it might put pressure on Shaw's to have more competitive prices, but in order for that to happen, the new store has to set a standard. The Co-op isn't doing it.

There are no warehouse stores within reasonable shopping distance, though there's a Wal Mart with a small grocery section in Littleton, and a Super Wal Mart about twenty minutes away.
