TPSS Co-op

TPSS Co-op TPSS Co-op promotes healthful living by offering wholesome foods, high quality products and community resources in a clean, friendly and cooperative grocery store ... that you own!
(47)

TPSS Co-op is a natural foods grocery store operating in the interest of its community. We are a cooperative business, owned by our friends and neighborhood residents. The first TPSS Co-op started as a vegetarian storefront on Sligo Avenue in Takoma Park in 1981. In February 1998 we moved to the larger store we now currently occupy on Ethan Allen Avenue. Our second store opened in October 2001 on Grubb Road in Silver Spring, but was not successful. We make every effort to carry products from local vendors and products that are wholesome, ecologically friendly, and socially responsible, at the lowest prices possible.

Experts say it may be time for grocery stores to ban customers from coming inside because of Covid-19

We'll always do our best for our community and our employees anyway, but it sure is nice to be noticed for it: https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/19/business/grocery-stores-coronavirus-pickup-delivery/index.html

Dozens of grocery store workers have died from the coronavirus, despite masks, temperature checks and capacity restrictions to keep them safe. So far, supermarkets have resisted the most draconian policy: banning customers from coming inside.

Sorry we've been so quiet. We've been making big changes happen. A huge tent for contactless pick up, moving our produce department to prepacked boxes, making space to store all your orders, and shopping all day long to fill your orders! Thank you all for your support and for bearing with us through this very big transition.

Starting tomorrow, we'll be reducing our hours to make sure we can serve you the best we can. Send one household member between 9 and 7 to shop. We'll be open 7 days a week, but ask you try to limit your shopping to once a week. We hope you'll grab essentials for neighbors and friends too to help limit the number of trips to store. Thank you all for your support and patience!

Does the Co-Op sell liquid hand soap or dish soap in bulk?
Hey folks. We just enjoyed three boxes of sushi from your cold case but are super disappointed that they each included plastic grass! Please talk to your vendor about illuminating this waste whole piece of plastic. It would be great if all co-ops across the country did as well and had a national policy against such things.
Take care of your workers
Just picked up our order. Thank you for helping us to keep safe by providing food for order. I so appreciate it. I am happy to see co-op staff able to work in a more protected environment and I appreciate what a big change this is for the co-op. I know that people are feeling stressed out in the world, but I am so sorry when they treat the co-op staff with less than courtesy and patience. Keep safe!
"Any store still allowing hundreds of members of the public to enter every day is taking a calculated risk on behalf of their front line staff," Houston said. "That is highly irresponsible to me." But you're open every flu season. So don't talk about "calculated risks" being irresponsible...or at least don't be a hypocrite. I understand that in _this_ instance you don't like the risk factors, but you do indeed take calculated risks with disease all other times.
Hello Takoma Park Families Archaikos foods has moved to the online orders and delivery using safe practices. Please check us out on www.archaikosfoods.eatontheweb.com We have an array of vegan and non vegan delicacies made by truly yours. Please contact Natasha Nenadović Bregenz at 2023520314 for a current promotion with your $35 order.
Hello and thank you for starting an on line store. Ordering was much easier on my laptop than on my Android phone. I could not find any Bread or Hamburger/Hotdog buns listed in your inventory. Are you selling these items? I did find Pita Bread. Thanks again for all that you are doing!
Hi Takoma Park Families, Archaikos has moved to the online orders. Please visit https://archaikosfoods.eatontheweb.com
Are items from the bulk bins excluded from online ordering at this time?
How does the new online scheme work? Would I as a customer place an order for my groceries online and then have it bagged up waiting for me when I get there?
Would it be possible for you to have people order groceries online or over the phone, pay for them, and then have a store employee bring their order out to their car? Maybe limits on what they can purchase that way. That would reduce the number of people coming into the store and coming into physical contact.
We made some headway on the mission to support Neteraru Rashad but there is still more ways to go! I am asking all my Black Rock Star Super Heroes to match my personal Plegde of $100. That way, 24 of us is all it takes to bring our Comfort. He has that and far more for THOUSANDS here in the DMV and on the West Coast. Please... if you can't help with pledging $10, $20, $50, $100 or more... then please Share this post. Let folks know how you know, love, and support this Brother.This Chocolate City Icon and Black Rock Star Super Hero! Please. https://www.gofundme.com/f/neteraru-rashad… #blackrockstarsuperhero #chocolatecityrocks
