'PCC members, save 10% on the shopping trip of your choice - extended through March 2005.'

Extended through March 2005 — 10% discount coupon for members

During the last quarter of 2004, on a trial basis, PCC began offering our members the chance to save 10 percent each month on a shopping trip of their choice ... In order to make sure that our co-op can afford this member benefit on a permanent basis, we will continue to test this offer for the next three months.

Beecher's brings handmade cheese to Seattle
