The Co-Op Economy in Maine

Posted on Posted in News

From Maine Public Radio:

For many people, when they hear the term ‘co-op’ they think of the local food store or maybe one of the lobster co-ops that dot the coast.  But Maine has co-ops of all sizes and types in the retail, agriculture, fisheries, manufacturing, housing, financial services and other sectors.  October is Co-op Month, so Maine Calling asks “What is a co-op?” and examines the role of co-ops in Maine
