Membership

At Co+opportunity, everyone is welcome.

While you don’t have to be a member to shop at the Co+op, it’s easy and it's beneficial to do. We take pride in the fact that we're a community-owned market & deli, where the very people that own this thriving  consumer cooperative are the ones shopping in the store.   Our community of members believe in equality for all, and invest an equal amount of dollars in their business as working capital so that they have a grocery store they can trust to supply them with the highest quality, freshest, organic, local, fruits, vegetables and unique foods around.

Becoming a member means that you have a share and a voice in guiding and supporting this sustainable, democratically controlled, economically fair form of business ownership. And although you may cancel your membership at any time and receive a full refund of your investment...why would you ever want to?

A wise investment

Invest $25 a year until you reach $300 (12 years/12 shares). That's the maximum amount any member can invest in membership shares. When the $300 investment is fulfilled, your membership is set for life. 

Membership shares are fully refundable and can be canceled at anytime!* To become a member, visit the Co+op today! 

* Annual investment shares must be paid each year to receive full refund. See membership contract for full details.
