Daily Update Log: COVID-19 Response

Updated: Mar 24

This post will be updated as we have announcements regarding store operations.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you during these unprecedented times. We’d like to share an update on how our co-op is responding to the public health crisis, out of abundance of caution and in accordance with recommendations from local, national and industry authorities.


As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, please know your co-op is closely monitoring the situation and taking precautions for the health of our shoppers and staff. We are regularly checking for updates from local, state and national public health authorities to serve you better during this time.


Daily Updates – March 24, 2020

  • In consideration of the health of our staff, we are unable to bag groceries in reusable bags until further notice. You are welcome to bag your groceries in your reusable bag or you may let our team bag your items in a paper bag.

  • For the safety of our staff and customers, we are unable to accept reusable containers for bulk bin refills until further notice. Please use a provided bag or choose from our pre-packaged bulk items.

  • Cafes and canteen: All cafe seating and canteen bar service is closed, per Executive Order (3.20.20) from the Governor of Florida.

  • Cafe hot bars/salad bars: Full service available at the counters at both cafes with limited hot bar menu options. Nine Mile Road cafe is offering chicken or meatloaf plates with mixed veggies and mashed potatoes for $8.99 per plate.

  • Support Pensacola Small Businesses: Look for signage designating Pensacola based makers and support them when you shop the co-op. Many of our vendors are impacted by the cancellation of events such as Palafox Market or the suspension of restaurant dine-in seating.

  • Please be mindful of others as you shop. Maintain 6 feet of social distance, only touch items you plan to purchase, wash your hands when you enter the store, leave your reusable containers at home, stay home if you are sick.

  • Please only take as much as you need before your next shopping trip. We are working with our distributors to restock shelves, but your cooperation is key in making sure there is plenty to go around.

  • We continue to operate under our regular store hours.
