E-receipts are here!

We’re excited to now offer our member-owners an e-receipt option. Interested? All you need to do is let your cashier know that you’d like to have your receipts emailed as the default and make sure that we have your email address on file (your cashier can help you with this, too). This means less paper AND less energy is used for each transaction!

Need your receipt for a return?  Just show us your receipt on a smart phone or print the receipt from your email.

MN FoodShare – we beat our goal!

In 2014 we raised 24,057.22 dollars/pounds for our neighborhood food shelves! Thank you to all who donated & gave during the month of March. and helped us beat our goal of 24,000 dollars/pounds of food.

Each March, Mississippi Market takes part in the Minnesota FoodShare March Campaign, a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches.

For each reusable bag that shoppers use at our stores they can choose to donate 5 cents toward the MN FoodShare through our EcoStamp program. Anyone can also round-up their purchases or donate a dollar amount at the registers.

And, check this out… Minnesota food co-ops together collected 100,271 dollars/pounds for our food shelves statewide!

Isn’t it amazing what cooperation can do?
