With over 35,000 members, Willy Street Co-Op;s west location has reached capacity and become a cramped space. The $2.25 million renovation and expansion of the Willy Street Co-Op in Middleton has resulted in virtually a new store. With wider aisles and 3,500 square feet of additional retail space, the now completed project has eliminated the cramp quarters and provided a more spacious shopping experience for their members.
The project, which pushed into space that had previously been home to a UPS store, also includes a new juice bar, a larger beer, wine and liquor department and more room for produce. The entry area has been enlarged with a new customer service desk and there is more seating and tables for customers who choose to have a cup of coffee or eat a meal from the hot bar or salad bar, deli or items from the grab and go areas. The expansion also includes more room in the back of the store for cold and dry storage.
