Owner Drive

October 8-22, 2018

Own a grocery store with us! Everyone is welcome to shop at our co-op, but there are benefits to ownership and during our owner drive there are extra incentives to join including 20% off a shopping trip, a chance to win a $200 co-op gift card, and a free tote.

October is National Co-op Month so it’s an especially important time to talk about what it means to be a co-op. We are a community-owned grocery store, a consumer-owned cooperative. Our shareholders are regular people just like you who elect a board of directors to oversee the store and staff carry out the day-to-day work.

Co-op  owners save 10% (or more) on shopping trips during owner appreciation weeks four times per year. They can also order cases of their favorite products and save 10%. All co-op profits are either invested in enhancing the store or shared with owners in profitable years.

By becoming an owner of the co-op, you contribute to a vibrant local economy that puts people before profits and keeps more of your dollar circulating within the community. Some examples include expanding the marketplace for locally-grown food and supporting good jobs. Learn more about the benefits of co-op ownership and how it works.
