The January 28th issue of the Independent ran a story on the sale of the building on Chapel Hill Street, the former location of the Durham Food Coop, and its new life as home to an acupuncture clinic. The story included some comments from Michael Bacon, DCM Board President, on the connections and also the differences between the two organizations. From the Independent article:
Meanwhile, Durham's retail food business has not been entirely ceded to national chains. Several members and former members of the co-op have formed a new co-op organization called Durham Central Market, which plans to open a larger, full-service grocery store based on a more conventional business model in the Durham Central Park area.
