Online grocer in trouble

A LAST-ditch call for volunteers and customers has been made in a bid to save a non-profit service providing locally farmed organic and non-organic food to Northern Rivers families.

The EcoMart Northern Rivers Co-Op, an online ordering system linking customers directly with local farmers, has been plagued by a declining customer base and problems with its ordering software.

Organisers say a new system has been implemented that solves the software problems but more customers and volunteers are desperately needed to keep the service viable.

A meeting is to be held tomorrow (Friday, February 15) from 10am at the shop at 117 High St, Lismore, for people who would like to support the service

If you cannot attend the meeting but are interested in using the service, click here to send an email to the co-op.
