Become an Owner

The Co-op is owned by its members,

this means that it is owned and democratically controlled by the people who shop in the store. Everyone is invited to shop here, but our owners are the heart of the co-op! Member-owners invest $80 onetime for an owner’s share. There are many benefits to being an owner (see below), and it’s just plain fun. We’d love to have you!
