How does a membership work?
When you become a member at the Co-op, you pay $40 per year for a 15% discount on every product in the store. This means if you spend $5 per week, your membership pays for itself. As a member, you also receive bimonthly newsletters, an additional case discount of 10% on special orders, regular member coupons and giveaways, and more.
Why buy a membership?
The Co-op membership doesn’t just save you money: it allows you to be an active part of a movement focused on honest food, local producers, and community sustainability. As a member of the Co-op, you can be involved in a number of ways, beyond spending your food dollars to support these things. Run or vote in the Board elections each Spring, attend or add agenda items to Board and management circle meetings, become a working member, or apply to join a management circle, and make decisions about the Co-op.
Membership Assistance Program
Starting March 1, 2018, students with a valid college, technical school, or high school id, or households that qualify for QUEST, Medicare/Medicaid, SSI/SSDI, and/or other similar financial programs may apply for membership assistance. These memberships qualify for a $25 annual fee, and receive the same membership discounts, services, and voting rights as a regular member.
Members at the Co-op have many ways to be involved in the Co-op. Join a management circle, come to a Board meeting or General Membership Meeting--or sign up for a special project!
Projects include events and outreach assistance, inventory, and newsletter writing. For more information and a complete list of upcoming involvement projects, contact Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have to be a member to shop at the Co-op?
Anyone can shop at the Co-op, whether or not you have a membership! If you’re a senior, a student, or a member of a different co-op, we also offer a 5% discount.
