  1. It’s strange though, as there’s two co-ops within walking distance to me and they are those little places down the road from where you go to grab a few bits, maybe a meal for the evening and go for a browse and gasp at some of the high prices. Now you don’t even have to leave the front door and go for a walk to your local shop to do it. What’s the point in having a local co-op on the corner if you aren’t going to even walk to it? Where’s the community? I wonder if some people will ever leave their front door? Or maybe I’m just an old dinosaur who doesn’t get it?
