A Community Where People Cooperate Together

Children are intuitive and wise in their own ways.  Today, in between carting my kids around town running errands in preparation for the Heritage Festival, my oldest son Jedd (6) drafted a "poster" for the GCG Heritage Fest float.  It reads:  GCG - A community where people cooperate together."  His poster was without prompting and guidance from me except for the fact that I called out how to spell the words as I loaded the car.  It wasn't until he showed me "his surprise" that I realized what he was up to.


Within a year, we have indeed become a community of people that have "come together to cooperate" and despite the fact that we don't have an actual store yet!  Granite City Grocery is a complex web of new and burgeoning relationships and ones just waiting to be formed. 

Some say that our community is quite stratified economically and socially and that a lot of us don't know one another.  GCG has bridged some of those divides, bringing together people that might not otherwise mix. And, they come together around an issue that they have in common - the desire to see fresh food in Barre and the conviction that everyone should have access to fresh food at a fair price no matter who you are, where you live, or what your income.

So, with that, here's to the first 60 owners in no particular order!  Please welcome the first 60 owners of Granite City Grocery - the households of:
