Two great tastes that taste great together: Bricolage and Drupal

Long-time "Bricoleur" Chris Schults reports that every Seattleite's favourite co-op, PCC Natural Markets (the largest consumer-owned natural food retail co-operative in the United States), has just re-launched their Web property using BricolageCMS and Drupal:

Last week PCC launched its redesigned website, which is a blend of Bricolage, Drupal and custom PHP.

So far, the response has been very positive, and I invite you to give the new site a whirl:

I had the pleasure of meeting Chris, if ever so briefly, while we were both working on a re-launch of online daily environmental news site in 2004, which was re-built using BricolageCMS (now running Expression Engine, I believe). Five years later and Chris is the Bricolage expert -- I love it.

Interestingly, online daily news site made a similar decision to use BricolageCMS and Drupal when they upgraded their Web operation recently, and they've contributed a model to help folks make similar integrations.
