The oldest and largest co-op in the Philadelphia area was recognized for going above and beyond by implementing positive changes and supporting the communities where its stores are located. It achieved this by collaborating and focusing on local farmers, artisans, and entrepreneurs.
This year has been especially challenging, but Weavers Way relentlessly rose to the pandemic. The co-op operates on a triple bottom line of bettering the community, supporting the environment, and making sound financial sense also ensures to put people first.
It has kept its staff and customers safe and healthy with numerous protective measures, despite the many operational difficulties brought on by the global pandemic.
“We are delighted by this honor,” said Jon Roesser, General Manager of Weavers Way Co-op. “We have never taken our driving principles of supporting local farmers, purveyors, the economy, and our customers lightly. We firmly feel that making business decisions that aren’t just based on profit but focused on what’s best for the community and the planet are what our customers so loyal.”
