We’re hiring for the positions of Grocery/Frozen buyer and Storekeeper

People’s is hiring for Grocery/Frozen Buyer and Storekeeper.  People’s is a dynamic and complex living workplace: a grocery store, a member-owned cooperative, a collective and much more.


Our Grocery/Frozen buyer is responsible for selecting, pricing, and promoting designated products; meeting objectives for sales, margin, and inventory turns; and for maintaining good relations with vendors.

Storekeepers work shifts on the retail floor where they are responsible for accurate and courteous cashiering, providing prompt and welcoming customer service, keeping the store fully stocked, and taking care of how the store looks and feels.

Both positions are People's Co-management and Full Time equivalent job and requires in-store co-management as a member of our worker collective. As a collective, we manage our Co-op prudently as a service to People’s member-owners, in line with the goals established by their elected stewards, the Board of Directors. In addition, the Co-op and collective are committed to fostering human rights and social and economic justice in our community and workplace.  Making a commitment to People’s Co-management requires hard-work, dedication, high yet reasonable expectations, bravery, compassion, and flexibility.
