Staff Spotlight: Rush Skinnell

Rush started working at Three Rivers Market in December of 2006 so he has invested sixteen and a half years of his life into the co-op!

His passion for organic agriculture, herbal remedies and the cooperative business model led him to be the Wellness Manager at Three Rivers Market.  Along with all the other dynamic employees at the time, Rush put in the hard work to make the move from the co-op’s prior location in an old two-story house at 937 N Broadway to the current expanded location on the cusp of Happy Holler.

As a fan of design, Rush admires the architecture of the store and likes to think of it as “a contemporary cathedral of cooperative commerce.” How’s that for alliteration!

As a resident of the Fourth and Gill neighborhood, Rush enjoys being able to walk to work and to support the other local businesses in the Downtown North and Old City areas…from bakeries to breweries, coffee shops and restaurants, it’s a hip and happening part of Knoxville with Three Rivers Market acting as a hub for this culturally rich community.

Three Rivers Market is a co-op.  We are named after the confluence of the Holston and French Broad Rivers on the eastern edge of the City of Knoxville.

These two rivers flow from the Southern Appalachian mountains and combine to form the third river, the Tennessee River, which travels south to Chattanooga and dips into Alabama before coming back into Tennessee delineating Western and Middle Tennessee.

Like the rivers for which we are named, Three Rivers Market nourishes our immediate community, our bioregion of the Southern Appalachians, and our region.

Rivers are fed by small creeks and other tributaries flowing into a larger body. Similarly, we are made stronger by our growing community of members and relationships with our local partners and other cooperatives.

In June we will be collecting change to help every child in our community become a proficient reader.

Friends of LIteracy’s “Literacy to Go” program nurtures literacy in the home, raising the reading levels of at-risk children.Low literacy skills are directly linked to greater inequality, higher unemployment, less income, and poor health.

Objective: To raise $7,000 to support Friends of Literacy.

Funds raised will provide 875 children of low-income families with a new book, literacy activities and supplies, and parent resources.

When one becomes a member of Three Rivers Market co-op, they accept certain responsibilities. No, I don’t mean putting your shopping cart back when you’re done – although we all thank you for doing so. I mean the responsibilities of ownership.

The agenda for the regular monthly meetings is posted at least one week before each meeting on the co-op’s website.

To request that an item be considered for the Board’s agenda, members can either email the request to board@threeriversmarket.coop or leave a note for the Chair at the Member & Customer Services Desk at the store. Requests must be dated and include name, member number, phone number, email address, or other reliable contact information needed for follow-up. The deadline for submitting items to the Chair for consideration is four weeks prior to the scheduled meeting.
