In the past Powderhorn coop has been noted for carrying only pure, whole grain food, often running out of items, closing during store
hours, being overly bureaucratic, and having too high a mark-up for shoppers who don't work in the coop.
Powderhorn is changing. Under new leadership and direction Powderhorn Coop is beginning to develop a stronger organization. The food
line is being expanded to include more staples, canned goods, meat and household items. The mark-up has been lowered for all shoppers
whether they work in the coop or not. Coordinators have been hired to help keep the store stocked and open and to seek ways for the store
to better serve the needs of the neighborhood.
