You can become an Owner by purchasing a share in the Co-op. Your share is an investment that helps build equity in the Co-op and minimize outside debt. One share costs $180 when paid in full, most owners pay in installments of $15 every six months until the full share is paid off. You are eligible for all of the benefits of Ownership with the first payment. Any money that you invest in the Co-op through equity payments is fully refundable.

⭐️Democracy in Action⭐️
Every Owner can vote and/or run for our governing Board of Directors and approve any changes to the Co-op’s Bylaws. We are also a democratically managed workplace.
Our store is collectively managed, which means that workers make major workplace decisions—not a general manager or hierarchal structure!
