The Co-op moved into its new premises in 2018 with the support of our members, Donore Credit Union and Community Finance Ireland.
The Co-op was welcomed warmly by the local community, and the existing Co-op community found itself in good company.
The Co-op has gone on to be a fixture of the Kilmainham/Inchicore community, with our membership increasingly comprised of local residents while retaining many loyal members from Newmarket, Pearse Street and before.
After many years of focusing on navigating the challenges of operating at Newmarket, moving premises and getting established in a new shop, the Co-op is now increasingly focused on its broader social, economic and environmental purposes and how it can best empower its membership to take collective action.
This has culminated in the latest innovation, our Community Development Programme, which provides training and capacity building to members and the wider community.
The future of the Co-op is an exciting one, with lots of opportunities ahead for growing the services that we provide to our members, and increasing our social and environmental impact.
