Webinar 2: Understanding Grocery Ownership Models 

The options for grocery store ownership are numerous. For many years, the family-owned grocery store was king, but alternative forms of grocery ownership, including shared ownership models, are becoming more common. Often, alternative models are the right fit for rural communities. This webinar will explore why it’s helpful to consider shared ownership models when transitioning grocery ownership and describe the basic characteristics of rural grocery shared ownership models.
