Natural Food Co-Op to Shut Down After More Than 4-Decades in Las Cruces

A natural food co-op store in business for more than four-decades is closing for good in Las Cruces. After 45-years in business, the Mountain View Market Co-Op will close its doors on December 5th due to a drop in sales. General Manager Claire Campos says the slower sales began around two years ago due to an increase in competition from the arrival of national chain stores offering similar natural products. Campos says the appearance of the COVID-19 emergency restrictions this year put the finishing touches on the store’s demise.
