I just ran some errands at the co-op in the ville, and I found out something interesting.
1) It is impossible to buy a single bar of soap. The smallest they have is a 3-pack. Maybe I should steal from hotels more often? What am I going to do with all of this soap???
2) Swarthmore Students are automatically co-op members! I don’t know how long ago the college gave money to the co-op, but I’ve been shopping there all three of my years here, and not one of the employees asked for my co-op membership card, or asked me if I was a student. Not that I was going to buy any tangelos today, but it’s good to know that the discounts apply to us.
3) Random question: do any of you current-student knitters out there shop at Finely? It seems like one of the few stores in the ville that’s geared towards a large part of the student body… ;o).
I hope I haven’t missed out on a lot of co-op discounts. Grarr.
