The Grass Roots Story
Grass Roots essentially grew from the First Alternative Food Co-op and the desire for access to practical information for a healthy, happy and fulfilling lifestyle. We wanted to teach people how to grow & cook good food, raise a healthy and rewarding family, and to seek self-awareness and understanding.
Slowly, as our friends matured, raised families, settled into their careers and developed their interests, we broadened our inventory to emphasize quality literature, non-fiction and inspiring kid’s books.
As we have grown and changed over the years, we have always made every effort to never take our community’s support for granted and to always seek to deserve their loyalty. When Borders first came to town, we hosted a Town Hall meeting to explain the values of local ownership and independently operated businesses. Because of the resulting overwhelming support, we went on to organize and found the Corvallis Independent Business Alliance (CIBA).
