How did it start: Elaine has been reading news from the American Booksellers Association and Publishers Weekly. These two sources provided her with the knowledge of changes in not just books but how other stores are doing and changes that are occurring. About 1-2 years ago she noticed a number of bookstores being bought and turned into coops and cities rallying to start coops.
Cultivate Coop has information from the logic behind the cooperative to starting one, forms, basically everything. Great site if you want to know all.
Links to other consumer cooperatives (that's what we will be) that you maybe familiar with.
If you like MS Power Points this is the site for you - it breaks things down into PP presentations.
Here are a few of the bookstore cooperatives that we looked at when researching cooperatives.
Want to learn more about cooperatives, their implementation and the logical behind? Bellow are various links that Elaine used in researching and implementing the cooperative.
