🍎 Member Drive – 12th-30th April
The Member Drive is an excellent time to become a member because you just may win a $50 gift card by doing so! Become a member from the 12th of April until the end of the month and you’ll be automatically entered into the raffle. Naturally, you will also receive the usual new member reusable bag full of goodies, as well! Here is a little information about our Co-op’s mission and what it means to be a member!
As the community’s Co-op it is our goal to to be a consistent source of reasonably priced, natural, local, and organic products. Shopping here is a way of supporting local farmers and businesses, as well as putting money back into the community. Becoming a member actually means becoming an owner, and with this investment comes the ability to attend our annual meeting, vote on Co-op issues, and vote for our Board of Directors, helping to shape our future.
To become a member is an $85.00 one time investment which can be paid in monthly installments. It is important to us that this option is open to all in our community which is why we have a Food For All program. Those with EBT, WIC, or SSI can get 10% off their groceries and pay their installments by the year. The Food For All program is part of our Community Roots Outreach Projects which also includes our Change For Change program, our monthly round-up for local non-profits at the register.
There are many benefits to being a member. Everything from voting for board members or on matters concerning your Co-op, to monthly member sales, member appreciation days, 10% off if you order a case of your favorite item, 10% off all Now supplements everyday, and 5% off all wellness items on Wednesdays. Members are also eligible for patronage dividends on our year-end-profits, meaning the more you shop the larger that amount could be!
Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you might have!
