The GAP LOCO (Local Organic Co-Operative) Shop has long been a beloved co-op providing organic food and spreading awareness on personal, community and environmental health.

Located between Yoorala Street Community Garden and the Balaangala Garden Space, at the SOWN Environment Centre Shed, the shop has finally closed its doors.

The shop’s announcement of leaving their building came in April of this year. Their last trading took place on 18 June. Locals expressed their sadness upon hearing the news and extended support in finding potential areas where the shop can relocate.

Despite this sad news, it seems like it’s not for good. The shop is hopeful of finding a new location where they can set up their place again. The Yoorala St location is now being leased by a The Gap/Ashgrove Men’s Shed.

Despite the location closure, the shop continues to be a part of the local community with their home deliveries taking place every Mondays.

The Gap LOCO is a community initiative that consists of seven part-time workers. It was established in 2012 and they aim to create an ethical and environmentally sustainable business that can survive financially and help other cooperatives to develop as well.
