Membership and Joining
The Coop is owned and democratically controlled by its members. You do not have to be a member of the Coop to shop at the store but, by joining the Coop, you become a part owner of our socially responsible business. Member-owners invest capital in the Coop that is used to purchase new equipment and operate the store on a daily basis. Member-owners also participate in decision making in the Coop, electing a Board of Directors at the Coop’s annual meeting.
Joining the Coop is easy. Just come on over to the store and fill out a membership application. We'll take your picture--say "organic cheese!"--and print you your Coop membership card. Please note that you will need to show this membership card whenever you shop in order to be eligible for member discounts or other member benefits.
Members are required to pay an equity share of $200 (refundable if you move out of the area), which can be paid in full or, if needed, in annual increments of as little as $25.
When you first join the Coop, you'll also pay a one-time membership processing fee of $10 for one person or $15 for a household of two.
