New Business Partners Have Sprung Up This Month! 

Like the new buds of spring, the immediate benefits of being a card-carrying Cedar Falls Food Co-op member-owner just keep growing. We have 4 new business partners to announce this month!


Looking to dress up your next outfit or the walls of your home? Gallery 106 is offering 10% off of their fun & funky jewelry collection & Bryan Sink artwork. You can’t go wrong with either of them. If you haven’t been to Gallery 106, be sure to pop in & say hello. You’ll be glad you did! 


The seasons are changing & maybe you’re sensing that it’s time for a change, too. Yet, you can’t quite put your finger on what it is. What if you could seek counsel from your very own guardian angels? Speaker, author and educator, Maria Gurney Peth PhD, utilizes her intuitive abilities to acknowledge the support of the divine angels in her life and the  lives of others. Maria’s Angelic Enlightenment is offering 10% off of a 50 minute session  to tap into unique guidance for your life & inspiration for your soul so you may discover your true life’s purpose. 


It takes great skill, commitment and passion to produce the highest quality chocolates available and Chocolaterie Stam downtown Cedar Falls definitely delivers. Now, the Cedar Valley can indulge in the nearly 100-year-old Dutch tradition of fresh cream and nut filled bonbons along with other fine confections, their own rich coffee blend, and homemade Italian gelato. Co-op member- owners will receive 10% off of Stam baking products like cocoa, chocolate squares & chips! Sure, you’ve tasted chocolate before – but nothing better than this.    


Suffering from migraines, fibromyalgia, asthma, neck pain, lower back pain or digestive disorders? By caring for the upper spine and nervous system, you’re not necessarily treating those conditions; however, you are allowing your body to heal as it is designed to! Dr. Kyle Troyer at Upper Cervical Health Center is offering $150.00 off your initial visit, which includes exam and x-ray, to help you take back your life! Whether you are seeking care for a specific condition or you are taking advantage of the wonderful preventative benefits of a safe, natural, and effective health care practice, you won’t be disappointed.

The Cedar Falls Food Co-op Announces New Program: Business Partner of the Month

The Cedar Falls Food Co-op understands the importance of recognizing, supporting and showcasing local businesses within our community. In turn, many businesses have already shown great excitement and interest in the growth and development of our community-owned co-op. To honor our new founding members, in 2015, the Cedar Falls Food Co-op is excited to announce our Business Partner of the Month. We are partnering with local businesses to provide our members with various specials and discounts. We are very pleased to offer our members such an immediate benefit. Once our store is open, members will, naturally, have access to the many benefits of being a member-owner. Our doors aren’t open just yet. However, providing our members with perks now, in this initial phase, feels fitting. We also desire to support our local businesses. So through our Facebook page and within our website and E-newsletters, we will be promoting a business of the month by featuring them and highlighting their services. Fostering supportive business partnerships benefits the whole community and certainly also reflects the cooperative model. Stay tuned in the months to come, as we will announce our monthly partners and the specials they are offering to our members!
