Soon, we will install plywood over the windows and entrances of Seward Co-op buildings. Co-op managers believe this is the best course of action to show solidarity with neighboring businesses, to protect the jobs of our staff and to protect our shared community assets. On Tuesday evening, a local news outlet reported looting in the Uptown area of Minneapolis. While we cannot predict what will actually happen in our community, we can proactively prepare for what may come. Seward Co-op’s goal is to continue to offer spaces for community members to safely access food. Our grocery stores are anchors in south Minneapolis, especially during these times of uncertainty and with the added layer of the pandemic.
