When you shop around the co-op you’re likely to run into some of our Staff Picks. These are items that could be brand new to the store, features from our Monthly Sales, or simply something we think is underrated and worth talking about. We encourage you to try these for yourselves and find out why we love them some much! Here are a few highlights.
