Harvest Co-Op Markets are a community-owned market with three stores in the Greater Boston area. With over 4,000 member owners, there's a bustling store in Central Square in Cambridge, and two in Jamaica Plain. As you can see from their old website, they needed our help!
GoingClear Interactive, after being carefully selected from a handful of top web design firms in the Boston area, was awarded the project and started with a Discovery and Planning Phase to learn more about their Internet goals and wish-list of website features and items. At the core, the website needed to be responsive and mobile ready and built in a way that would make it easy for their administrative team to make ongoing website updates. We customized their blog, so their customers and member-owners can stay informed on the latest news at Harvest. Another cool feature of the new Harvest site is the Member Classifieds. This section of the website allows for members of Harvest Co-Op to post classifieds, further connecting and building the Harvest community! The most user-friendly feature of this site is the Become a Member/Owner page. This seamless process allows for users to sign up and pay for a membership online via an ecommerce integration. Once the payment is complete, the new member can print out their temporary membership card with a unique bar-code ready to be scanned, so they don't have to wait to go shopping! This feature makes it easier for both the customer, and for Harvest Co-Op in managing and taking care of new member-owners.
