May Your Dream Come True...
Prior to the Purple Carrot Market Store Design "Parti", we would like to see each of you gather photos. Go out and visit local co-ops and take pictures of what you like. Visit pinterest, search online, use magazines and save photos. Send digital copies of the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 23rd, as Widseth will create vision boards from theses photos for display at the open house. If you are unable to send digital copies you are welcome to just bring your photos to the event as well.
I'll help you get started with this flipbook. Get inspired by paging through the flipbook (click on the button) and see if there are photos you like. The Purple Carrot Market has a great future ahead.
The Store Design "Parti" is taking place Wednesday, August 25th from 4-6 pm for owners only at the Victor Mall Building. The "Parti" will be in an open house style with board members there to talk and listen with you along with personnel from Widseth. Come see what Widseth, together with the Store Design Committee, came up with for a floor layout. If you are not an owner; but would like to participate, become an owner today by clicking on the link.
The Purple Carrot Market will be serving a light snack of bruschetta and a beverage with ingredients from local owner/producers; the Little Falls Bakery will provide the baguettes and purple carrot cookies.
This is your chance to be heard on the feel and vibe of our community owned grocery store with the architects in the room.

When designers start a building project, they begin with a "parti" - the general inspirational concept that will resonate throughout the project. As we design our co-op's future storefront, we want to hear from our owners what the "parti" should be for the Purple Carrot Market.
We invite our owners to show us what they think the look and feel of our grocery store should be. Gathering our owners ideas will be a three step process. . .
First, we ask that owners visit other co-ops or grocery stores and take photos of what you like; or search online or in magazines for photos of spaces that have the "vibe" that you would like to see in the Purple Carrot.
Second, please send a digital copy of your photo(s) to email@example.com by August 23. Ashley is our liaison at Widseth, our design company. Ashley will take all of the submitted photos and create vision boards for display at our open house on August 25.
Third, join us on Wednesday, August 25 from 4-6 pm as we bring our owners together to discuss and cultivate ideas. This is an open house style event so stop in, check out the vision boards made up of everyone's photos, and share your thoughts and ideas. This will be a fun and exciting evening!
