The Co-op Natural Foods received devastating damage as the result of an arson that took place in the early hours of Sunday, January 19th. While the Duluth location is currently closed, The Co-op is working furiously to re-open in a temporary capacity at 410 W. 18th Street.

Since 1973, we've been serving our member-owners and customers in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. We plan to continue this commitment. As a member owned co-operative, we hold to a different set of values, and our sole purpose is to serve you and your needs. In turn, we have been overwhelmed by the support we are receiving from our community at this time. The Co-op would like to express heartfelt thanks those who have gifted their time, money, and resources to help start to rebuild The Co-op, including Sanaa Abourezk at Sanaa's 8th Street Gourmet. Sanaa graciously organized a benefit dinner and silent auction attended by more than 700 people, and $8,000 was raised. Thank you to all who participated.

Please direct any inquiries regarding volunteering to our Membership Coordinator, Annie Blotz, at annie@coopnaturalfoods.com. Include your name, phone number, email address, and any information regarding special skills or abilities you have to offer.
