Staff Appreciation

We’re regularly recognizing an outstanding one in a melon employee! Staff nominate their peers based on exceptional customer service and an eager can-do attitude. To say “thanks a melon!” winners will receive a cash reward for their sweet attitude. 

February 2021 – Misty


Congratulations to our newest One in a Melon Award winner, Misty! Misty was nominated by multiple co-workers who describe her as performance as "phenomenal". Misty has recently taken on buying duties in the grocery department, in addition to keeping her section beautifully stocked and fronted.

Her co-workers say that she is a pleasure to work with, has tremendous pride in her job and is a huge contributor to the success of the co-op. We are proud to call Misty our co-worker!

August 2020 – Michael


Several staff members nominated Michael for the prestigious one in a melon award for a number of reasons: Michael’s willingness to help out wherever they’re needed, volunteering for new tasks that make the store and your shopping experience better, and because Michael is truly one of the good ones. 

Michael’s advice? “Be more than what is presented, and love. Love with everything you have and be more.”
