  • Reusable containers are permitted in bulk foods. Containers must be clean.
  • Returnable containers
    • Customers may show their Tyler Mountain Spring water container to our staff for a tag and are asked to return the empty containers to the shelf themselves.

  • Please select the “choose the best replacements” option when you check out. This will help us move quickly through orders and open more spots for other shoppers.

  • East End Food Co-op has ramped up our cleaning and sanitizing routine to help reduce the risk of spreading the illness to our staff and to our members and shoppers.
