A dream thirty years in the making has now come true for Rainbow CoOp in Fondren. Luke Lundemo, Rainbow CEO said the group now has a Warranty Deed showing Rainbow Natural Grocery Cooperative owns 2807 Old Canton Road. The cooperative has come through on their commitment of 14 years ago to purchase the building from the group of member-investors (The Old Canton Road Group, Inc.). Tom Underwood, representing the group, said the CoOp has been the best tenants he has ever had. Irene Jones, speaking for Rainbow, expressed their thanks to Underwood and his group for working with Rainbow through some difficult times and making it possible for them to grow like it has in their Fondren location.
