Although construction was delayed due to all the winter weather, opening day has finally arrived for the Durham Co-Op Market.

I didn’t need much, but I definitely needed this: The interior of the store is nice, with a lot of light coming in from those windows. It’s not a big store – I feel like it’s a bit smaller than the 9th St Whole Foods original size – but they’ve got most of what you’d expect (including a prepared food counter, coffee shop, and a deli). Prices seem to be about in line with Whole Foods.
It’s also a great place to stalk local radio personality Frank Stasio, who was making the rounds when I stopped by.
I’ve posted about the DCM a few times, and it’s really exciting to see the project come to fruition. The building is located at 1111 West Chapel Hill St. (at the intersection of Kent and WCH, near the cemetery).
