The board of directors and general manager of Bloomington Cooperative Services announced Tuesday night that the co-op will close its Elm Heights location in May 2016. The Elm Heights store on 2nd and Fess opened in August 2013 after several years of market surveys and research; the store has significantly underperformed since its opening.
The co-op will also move its commissary kitchen operations, currently located on South Washington Street, back into the east side and Near West Side stores later this year, a return to the co-op’s original model.
