Becoming a Co-op member-owner not only makes good economic sense, it’s a choice that affords many social benefits! You’re joining a dynamic community of happy, healthy people that are invested in a creative vision to transform the future. Membership demonstrates a commitment toward building a sustainable business that is open to everyone, operates democratically, and supports an ethical and resilient local food system. Your membership share contributes to the collective capital that sustains our mission to enhance physical and social health in our community. All that – plus discounts, special member services, exclusive offers at partnering businesses, access to our Federal Credit Union, and a vote in Co-op elections!
The membership share is an investment of $100 that is paid once and entitles you and your household to the benefits of one membership. There are no annual fees or dues, and the share is fully refundable. You have nothing to lose and a community to gain!
If you’re considering joining our Co-op community, or have someone in mind to refer, now is the time! The Co-op is hosting a Member Drive Friday, October 4 through Saturday, October 12 with fun activities and promotions.
- New members receive a free zero-waste utensil set and are entered in a drawing to win a $25 co-op gift card (that’s like getting one free share payment)! It’s easy to join; just stop by Customer Service to fill out an application and make a payment toward your share. You can pay all at once, or in $25 quarterly installments.
- Current members who refer a friend earn a $5 gift card for each referral they make during the member drive (maximum referral reward $20). The new member must submit a referral form and join between 10/4-10/12/19 in order for the referring member to get credit. Referral Forms are available as a PDF here and will be available at the Customer Service desk.
- Current members can also stop by our table throughout the week to play Pliko (or as we’re calling it, Plico-op) for a chance to win raffle tickets towards amazing prizes! Co-op staff will be in front of the store during select hours each day so stop by for your chance to play!
- All members can enter our Grand Prize Giveaway valued at $275.00! One winner will be drawn for a Traeger Outdoor Fire Pit, Telescoping Roasting Sticks, plus fancy chocolate bars, marshmallows, and graham crackers.
We hope you’ll join us during this year’s Member Drive!
