For those of you who were not familiar with Dottie’s Discounts Foods, it was a storefront on Flat St in Brattleboro, VT owned by the Co-op and open for nearly 12 years.
Dottie’s is now closed, but its mainstay products are being incorporated into the Brattleboro Food Co-op.
These new and affordable food items range through 52 categories across the store. This includes staple items such as bread, milk, eggs, butter, peanut butter, fruits, vegetables, cheese, frozen foods and meat.
You will see Dottie’s Pennywise Purchases shelf tag “call outs” on our shelves directing you to budget friendly products. We hope you take advantage of these money saving products!
As we enter 2021, we hope to welcome a “ding & dent” section where you can find even more value purchasing that aligns with what Dottie’s offered in its store front.
