Alberta Food Co-op Opens Doors

After Years of planing and hard work Portland has another food co-operative. The Alberta Cooperative Grocery opened its doors Saturday after many staff and working members worked long hours in order to make final preperations. They are still working some bugs out of the system but were quite happy to open the doors.

This marks the continued revival of this Alberta neighborhood. On opening day the Alberta Co-op already had approximately 200 members. The Co-op is located on the corner of NE 15th and Alberta, and open Monday thru Saturday 10-8 and Sunday noon-5.
