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!

One Time $80 Investment

• It’s an investment not a fee! When the co-op is profitable, we return profits to our owners through dividends and expanded services.

• Pay off your share all at once or in $20 installments over a year.

• Fully refundable at any time.

• Stop into one of our stores.
