Moscow food coop is kind of lame (Moscow)

The coop is pretty crappy. Not sure why everyone raves about it. It's over priced- even more so after the "remodel" that they hyped up so much. The way some people talk about the coop is almost.. cult-like. Shopping at a bougie grocery store where everything is "local" and "glutenfree" isn't a personality trait.. - it's a business looking to get as much money out of you as possible. Stop buying 12$ a lb ginger to help you pretend we live in a cool, hip place; this is northern idaho not sanfrancisco.
And my god have I heard of how bad working at the coop is! No wonder they have such a high turn over! The employees are all so nice!! (I have no complaints about them!!) But I've heard people get fired for small petty things and the only way to do well there is to kiss up to management. "The board" or whoever runs the place seems very pretentious and fakey.. I'm sure there's some reasonable people in managment but overall- yikes! Also I heard some company in another state bought the debt the place had from the remodel and the business is struggling. Hope it goes dooooown! The curry is delicious though! Sometimes I buy a little container from the deli when I have some extra $
