Old North Grocery Co-op Is Incorporated…and Now YOU can own a piece of it

The Old North Grocery Co-op is now more than just a vision:  it’s an officially recognized business in the eyes of the State of Missouri and the IRS.   On Tuesday we received our certificate of incorporation from the Missouri Secretary of State’s office (and the federal identification number from the IRS later that day), which means we now can start selling shares in the ownership of an actual business.  Click HERE for a downloadable Owner-Member Application, which can be dropped off or mailed into the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group office at 2700 N. 14th Street.

To help with the share-selling campaign, we’re offering a “sneak peek” inside the building that is getting ready to house the soon-to-open grocery co-op this coming Wednesday from 3-6 p.m.  Come on by to take a look at the space and pick up a membership application or make your payment on the spot while you’re admiring the new front doorway that was cut into the building on Friday. 

The new entrance will still be on N. 13th Street but will be closer to St. Louis Avenue and will feature an accessible entry ramp, thanks to a facade improvement grant from the City of St. Louis, made possible by support from 5th Ward Alderwoman April Ford Griffin.

Watch this site for more details as all of the pieces continue to fall into place.
