I Own It
Why do you love Outpost?
For years we've been hearing that our Owners love Outpost. So one day, we decided to ask them to tell us why. So, how about you? Are you an Outpost Owner? Do you want to share the love? If so, please contact us and you too could be featured!

“Shopping at Outpost gives us the opportunity to invest in what we value: Our local economy and community members, delicious food that is good for our long term health, a sustainable planet, and a network of farmers and businesses committed to similar values. We’re proud to be owners!”
Sharon & Larry Adams
“Outpost always provides the best eggs, butter, bacon, soaps, tasty snacks and our personal favorite, pecan brownies. There's always an abundance of products from local vendors, such as Salsa Lady and Garden of Eden Kingdom Living. This cooperative treasure is all about our community and bringing people together.”
“I chose to be an owner at Outpost because I believe people should have some control over the food supply. The impact on the health of our planet, economy and our physical bodies can’t be overstated. The fresh foods at Outpost are the best in my opinion. Call me weird, but I enjoy shopping there because of all the great people I’ve met that work and shop at the co-op!”
"I chose to become an owner of Outpost when the Wellness Commons opened because I believe that spending power is voting power. Each dollar spent is a vote for healthy, natural foods; and being an owner allows a deeper engagement in the cooperative."
Sarah & Joe Oszuscik
“We've been owners of the co-op for over 20 years! We became owners because we wanted to support local farmers and locally sourced food and products. Keeping money flowing through the local economy helps raise up and strengthen the community. We keep coming back for the organic options, bulk foods and the sense of community. We also admire what the co-op does to support the city through their sponsorships, food donations, and grass-roots partnerships.”

“’Thank you for being here,’ I said to the Outpost cashier during a cold snap. It was -7 degrees outside, but it was as warm as always inside. The lighting wasn’t harsh or buzzing, a good song was playing over the speakers and the cashier took time to chat about the weather and my grocery preferences. ‘It’s so nice here at Outpost. Thanks for being open. Not just today, every day!’ I really can’t think of a better place to shop.”
