Everyone is welcome to shop at the Co-op, but we encourage everyone to join and become members of the organization. Membership in the Co-op comes with many benefits, not the least of which is the sense of belonging in a vibrant democratic organization, organized specifically to serve its constituents.
The Co-op is wholly owned by its membership, and members help choose store policy and vote for the Board of Directors. The Board governs the Co-op on a day-to-day basis, selects the staff management, and decides on overall strategy. For more specialized purposes we have empaneled separate committees devoted to areas like membership, outreach, and product issues.
