About Us

Our co-op works the way all co-ops work: We're member-owned!

At the heart of how a co-op works is the concept of member-ownership. Simply put, a co-op is a business owned by the people who use it. This is a very different way of doing business. The co-op exists to serve its members, rather than to return profits to a single individual or small group of outside investors. If you're a co-op member, in addition to getting the products you need, you also have a say in your co-op's direction and business decisions.

More than 800 million people around the world belong to cooperatives, and 100 million people worldwide work for co-ops. Thriving co-ops build strong, robust local economies. To quote the late Sid Pobihushchy, a visionary cooperative thinker and activist, "Community good and individual good is linked. Cooperation is the ideal state of society.”
