From the Board of Directors:

I am writing to you as the President of the Board of Directors of Company Shops Market to let you know that there has been a change in the position of General Manager.

Chris Bartlett has served as General Manager of Company Shops Market for its first four and one-half years of operation. He is now leaving that position. Chris brought many gifts to his role as General Manager, and we appreciate his diligence and hard work in guiding Company Shops during its start-up phase. We wish him the best in his next endeavor.  

We are pleased to announce that beginning today, August 3, Ben Wright will become the Interim General Manager. Ben has served Company Shops well in several roles including produce manager and central store manager. We have great confidence in Ben’s leadership abilities and look forward to working with him as we move forward.

As a Board of Directors, we also want to reaffirm to all of our owners our absolute commitment to making Company Shops Market an excellent and sustainable coop grocery store in the heart of downtown Burlington. We are excited about new opportunities for the future of Company Shops Market and ask all of our owners to join with us as we all work together to make Company Shops Market all that it can be.

Clay Smith

President, Company Shops Board of Directors
