From humble beginnings in 1973, when the Co-op was only a few dozen people comprising the "food-buying club," the store has outgrown four locations. With a newly expanded wine shop now open across the parking lot, the Boise Co-op has just made yet another expansion to accommodate its ever-growing membership base and popularity. What makes it the best local store in Boise? No doubt its homegrown history, its huge selection of natural and organic goods, its commitment to local products and its reputation for giving back to the community.
