Eat Local Sudbury Cooperative is closing their doors in March stating a steady decline in sales.

The Cooperative team released a statement on Facebook thanking their loyal customers and hoping that this is just the beginning for the eat local movement in Sudbury.

But they say a financial crisis in 2016 and the decline of their sales over the last two years led the board to make the decision to close and dissolve the cooperative..

Eat Local Sudbury Co-op is a grocery store that sells produce and meat from farms within a 150 mile radius of Sudbury and products from Ontario.
