The Store



What we Believe 

MISSION  October 2010


The Acworth Community Project’s mission is to maintain a traditional, reliable grocery and general store, cooperatively owned and governed by its members, and committed to serving the basic food and nonfood shopping needs of all town residents, and to be a welcoming center for eating meals and meeting friends.

Check us out on 2015 Chronicle Boston, we are on at the 1.30 minute mark.



Why Shop Local 

  • BUILD COMMUNITY! The casual             encounters you enjoy at our small scale business and the public spaces around them build relationships and community cohesiveness. 

  • STRENGTHEN OUR LOCAL ECONOMY! Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain (hundreds of times more than buying from an online mega-retailer) — a benefit we all can bank on.

  • SHAPE OUR CHARACTER! Our store helps give our community its distinct personality.

  • CREATE A HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT! Our store is independent, community-serving and people-sized. It consumes less land, carries more locally-made products, located closer to residents and creates less traffic and air pollution.

  • LOWER TAXES! More efficient land use and more central location mean our store puts less demand on our roads and safety services. We also generate more tax revenue per sales dollar.

  • CHOICES! We look forward to serving our customer's tastes and services.

  • CREATE JOBS AND OPPORTUNITIES! We employ more people directly per dollar of revenue and we support local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs.

  • GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY! Small businesses like ours donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams compared to big businesses.

  • INCREASE WEALTH OF RESIDENTS! The multiplier effect created by spending locally generates lasting impact on the prosperity of local organizations and residents.

  • ENHANCE LOCAL DEMOCRACY! Local ownership of our store means residents with roots in the community are involved in key development decisions that shape our lives and local environment.
