|My Co-op Story|
by Peter Shumlin
The last time I was in Brattleboro for a packed schedule of events, I made sure to squeeze in a few minutes to swing by the Brattleboro Co-op. Since moving to Montpelier I haven't been able to find any local store that carries my favorite brand of tea, Typhoo, but I knew I would find it in Brattleboro. I was disappointed to see only Typhoo decaf boxes on the shelf, but as Governor I've learned not to give up in the face of tough challenges. I found a helpful Co-op member to check the back for me. I left the store a happy camper having convinced a friend I ran into to buy a box, and buying three boxes for myself.
