  • Real Food Coop – Needs Store Assistants

    Posted on May 18th, 2009 VitalBodies No comments

    Twenty-Six, In-Store-Assistants are the present “catch of the day” at Maple and Rhody.  Would you enjoy being one of them?

    Our May calendar is filled with cashiers who are keeping the till ringing.  But, Cashiers need help from one or two people per day to perform  general daily duties depending on the day’s needs.    For example, when products get purchased…  extra products in storage need to be added to the bulk containers… such as coffee beans.  Spills need to be cleaned up. etc.

    It’s so easy to get in on the fun of community.    Just stop in and ask “How Can I Help?”    Encourage your partner and friends to do the same.

    The store’s new phone number is 997-3396.  Ask to be put on the calendar if you want an exact time or if you want to be in the store when a certain cashier is working.

    If evenings are the only time you have to give 3-4 hours a month,  call Jenn on Tuesdays or Thursdays at the store;  call a cashier and leave a message;  or email me kdd@oregonfast.net and I’ll pass the message on for that potential.  The store is already open until 8pm on Tuesdays, when Oceana Delivery truck arrives with food.

    The following crews are posted on a green sheet on the Community Board at our store, for further information.

    Are You Recycling Compact Florescent Bulbs?

    They contain small amounts of Mercury so we all should be, but where do we take them?

    True Value Hardware, Ikea, and Home Depot take them and other Hardware stores might be accepting them also.

    Do you know anywhere else that is accepting bulbs for recycling? Leave a comment and tell the world…
