At Co+opportunity, everyone is welcome.
Everyone can shop and anyone can join Co+opportunity.
We take pride in the fact that we're a community-owned market, where the very people who own this thriving consumer cooperative are the ones shopping in the store. Each owner invests an equal amount of dollars in the co-op as working capital so that they have a grocery store they can trust to supply them with the highest quality, freshest, organic, local foods around.
Becoming an owner means that you have a voice in guiding and supporting this sustainable, democratically controlled, economically fair form of business ownership. Think of this as an investment in your community, and although you may cancel your ownership 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 owner can invest in ownership shares. When the $300 investment is fulfilled, your ownership is set for life.
Ownership shares are fully refundable and can be canceled at anytime!* To become an owner, visit the Co+op today or sign up online!
* Annual investment shares must be paid each year to receive full refund. See ownership contract for full details.

Co+opportunity owners keep their money within their local economy, benefiting local sustainable agriculture, fair wages staff benefits, and embracing consumer cooperation.
