General Manager Search

Are you passionate about natural and organic food and have a knack for leading retail teams to success?

We have an opportunity for you!

Harvest Moon Natural Foods Coop serves the Long Lake/Orono and Minneapolis Western Suburban community as a convenient source of natural, organic and locally sourced healthy food.  Services include groceries, pre-made carry out food, health care products and an in-store deli with indoor and outdoor seating.  We aspire to be a hub for the community where people come together to make the world and our corner of it stronger, healthier and better connected.

The store opened for business in June 2010 and now has over 1,800 member owners.  Current annual sales are approximately $3.5 million and are growing.  The store struggled its first few years of operation, but through good management has achieved 3 years of consistent profit growth.  The store employs approximately 40 staff in full and part-time positions including six full time managers.  We are looking to replace our current General Manager, who has decided to leave the store for personal reasons.

We are looking for an experienced and energetic leader who can:

  • Continue our growth and profit momentum through articulating and achieving a strategy that meets the store’s “Ends Statement” mission and goals
  • Be the “face” of Harvest Moon by building healthy relationships with all stakeholders including Member-Owners, Board, Staff, local businesses and organizations and the regional and national Co-op Community
  • Build, train and motivate a staff focused on operational and customer service excellence
