Behind the Counter with ... Barry

When you chat up Barry Devine (receiving coordinator at the Wine Shop), it quickly becomes clear he’d be hanging around the Co-op even if he didn’t work here.  He’s a big believer in natural and organic foods, as well as the cooperative model.

Barry gets a kick out of the many loyal customers he has come to know. The folks he works with keep him energized, too.

“The people here are fun and friendly,” said Barry, who enjoys the valley alongside his wife, Amy, and two young boys. To unwind, Barry loves going to concerts. His favorite shows have included Faded Leroy, Primus and My Morning Jacket.

"My favorite Co-op product is … Weleda skin and hair care products."

"I’ve been at the Co-op … 8 years."
