New Temporary Hours at People's
Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market COVID-19 Policy
10% Off Owner Appreciation Days*
Monday, August 10 – Sunday, August 23
Enjoy a 10% off Owner Appreciation Discount coupon for all People’s Co-op owners to use during the Monday, August 10 – Sunday, August 23.
Here’s how it works:
Your owner number can only be used one time with your Owner Appreciation Discount coupon. If someone other than the primary shareholder (i.e. the person whose name is on the ownership card) uses the Owner Appreciation Discount coupon (for instance a roommate or spouse), that counts as the one time use. Forgot your coupon from the newsletter? Ask any cashier for a coupon! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask any cashier or call People’s at (619) 224-1387.

Limited Packaged Bulk Food Available!
Dear People’s Shoppers,
Due to mandates by the San Diego County of Dept. of Environmental Health, grocers may no longer offer self-service for bulk items. As such, we have closed our bulk depts.
We now have an assortment of essential bulk food items available, prepackaged. These items include flours, grains and oats, as well as nuts and seeds. As the days progress, these items will increase to include some granola, popcorn, and more.
Be well & stay well. Love, People’s

Dear Valued Owners and Shoppers,
I want to give you an update on the steps Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Market is taking to protect customers and staff in light of the presence of coronavirus (COVID-19) in San Diego County. Your health and safety are, and always will be, our highest priority. We have instituted a vigorous cleaning and sanitation program for all high traffic areas and hard surfaces in the store, including but not limited to: door handles, bathrooms, checkout stands, handrails, and sitting and eating areas. All passive demos have been suspended, as have the salad bar, self-serve soups, and self-serve baked goods in our deli. We will still have soup available to be served by deli staff, and baked goods will now be wrapped and priced per package.
We have suspended all public gatherings such as Community Room events, music in our deli, and store tours. Staff have been instructed to stay home if they feel unwell, and will be asked to go home if they exhibit any symptoms of having the virus. We ask that our owners and shoppers refrain from entering the store if they have any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19, including sore throat, fever or respiratory discomfort.
The current situation is fluid, and changing day-to-day. We ask that you check the Co-op’s website often, as that is the most efficient way to communicate our response to the rapidly changing conditions. Our efforts are focused on staying open despite the challenges of meeting the current sales demand and protecting the health of staff and the public. We are a strong community, and we will get through this together. Patience, mutual respect and diligence will be paramount in weathering what I hope will be a temporary disruption to our normal service.
Yours in good health,
Jim Kase, General Manager
