Save 10 Percent at Food Conspiracy on First Fridays This Summer

June 1, 2012

Every summer, the Food Conspiracy Co-op throws a party on the first Friday of each month.

Party equals First Friday Summer Sales.

The fun starts June 1 with live music, free food and a great sale.

On Friday, June 1, all shoppers will save 10% on purchases (excluding Basic Buy items, case discounts, and gift cards) from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

From 6-8 p.m., the Dusty Buskers will play music outside on the sidewalk and Conspiracy Kitchen will serve free food inside the store.

First Fridays are great occasions to become Food Conspiracy Co-op owners. Join the co-op during our First Friday sale and receive a $10 gift card.

Anyone can become an owner for $180. Choose to pay $22.50 installments every three months, plus a non-refundable $10 administrative fee. Or pay all at once and the co-op will waive the administrative fee. Remember, an equity investment of $180 is fully refundable. If one ever decides one no longer wants to be a member, they’ll give it back.

In years when the Food Conspiracy is profitable, the board of directors decides how much of the co-op’s net profit to return to owners. Refunds are distributed in proportion to an owner’s purchases.

Since 1971, the Food Conspiracy Co-op has been committed to providing the Tucson community with the highest quality natural and organic foods. The co-op offers certified organic products whenever possible, and all produce growers adhere to organic standards.

Moreover, the co-op does its best to avoid products known to contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In keeping with its commitment to the environment, social justice and education, the Food Conspiracy is constantly expanding its line of local, fair trade, and independently produced items.

The dust is flying this summer. Currently, the section of Fourth Avenue north of Sixth Street is closed to vehicle traffic due to construction on the modern streetcar.

The co-op is also in the midst of a renovation, and part of the store is walled off while workers install new cases, paint, and pour a new concrete floor. But don’t worry – the co-op will be open all summer long, and the staff are doing their best to make sure the shopping experience doesn’t suffer. Moreover, the co-op has opened up the gravel lot at the rear of the store to customer parking.
