BriarPatch bids adieu to old store

BriarPatch Co-op closed its Joerschke Drive store Friday and will open its doors at its new location on Litton Hill at 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The night before, members will get a sneak peek during a preview night and ribbon cutting ceremony for the 31-year-old natural food market set to open at 290 Sierra College Drive at the roundabout.

The new store has 11,000 square feet of retail space, compared to 3,000 square feet at the former site on Joerschke Drive.



The new building costs BriarPatch $3.8 million. The co-op will rent the building from Calloway Development, owned by the Litton family, with an option to buy in three years.

The store will have 123 employees, compared to 60 before the move.




The building is the first commercial building in Nevada County to be certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a national organization offering standards for sustainable construction methods and materials.

The store will carry a full line of natural and local meat and fish, a deli with self-serve hot and cold bar and take-home items. There will be four kinds of homemade soups every day, sandwiches, veggie and meat burgers, a juice bar, smoothies, espresso bar and bakery with bread and pastries.
