PCC Discovery Day

Saturday, April 23 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., all PCC stores

For many years a highlight of each April has been a member gathering featuring updates on the progress of our co-op, the start of the annual election period and great PCC food.

This year we’re reinventing the April member gathering, giving it a new name, new day, new time, and a whole new way to experience PCC. We’re calling it “PCC Discovery Day — Here’s what local looks like.” For convenience, it will be held on Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at all PCC stores.

Through displays, special guests and product and cooking demos — and PCC food, of course — we’ll share with members and shoppers the many ways PCC partners with local organizations and vendors in our communities. State-of-the-co-op reports from the board and management, as well as board candidate campaign statements, will be available on video throughout the day.

Members will be able to vote during the event and help their home store win a prize for bringing in the most ballots.

Please plan to join us to discover and enjoy the very best of what makes PCC the greater Seattle area’s truly local grocery store. We look forward to seeing you!
