Circle C Market Stop # 11 pg # 42

Circle C Market in Cody, NE is the result of a community wanting to provide a unique learning lab for students.   It is run as a non-profit social enterprise with the primary purpose of serving the community and educating students.  

This is a unique store for a couple of reasons.  One, it's built from straw and two, it's run by high school students.  It's probably obvious for anyone who knows what straw is, that the walls would be very thick.  

We found it interesting that the store is able to financially support itself.  I just thought it would have to be subsidized to keep operating but I guess not, according to the student on duty.  Then I figured the students must be taking turns as volunteers.  Nope, they are paid to work here.  

Naturally, the brand selection will be small, but they do have pretty much any category of items you probably want.  In a small town such as Cody, this must be a welcome endeavor for the students since employment opportunities for high school students can't be very common.  It was very neat and well stocked.  I want to give credit to everyone in the community and the teachers for coming up with this idea, and of course the students to take on such a project.  Well done everyone, keep up the good work.
