Try it Out
Come in for two consecutive weeks and shop as much as you like, without service charge.
If two weeks isn’t enough, trial shoppers can come back in for an additional two weeks, but will have a service charge added the first shop of a week, based on their household size (see Membership for more details.)
Your membership level is determined based on the number of adults in your household. To help cover the operating costs of the Co-op, a weekly service charge will be charged every week, paid on the first shop of that week.
|Type||Adults in Household||Weekly Service Charge|
|Single||1 adult||$ 4.14|
|Family||2-4 adults||$ 8.28|
Households wanting to join with more than four adults should speak with a manager.
If you miss a few weeks, then your unpaid service charges (up to four weeks) will be added to the cost of your next shop.
Members can offset the weekly service charge by helping out in the store. Depending on your household size, one three hour shift can cover 2-4 weeks, saving you those weeks of service charge.
|Type||Adults in Household||Service charges covered|
|Single||1 adult||4 weeks|
|Family||2-4 adults||2 weeks|
Each household pays $40 per year to the Co-op, stopping once a membership has paid $400. This $40 is made up of four $10 shares paid each quarter of the year, and helps support the co-op.
If a household decides to leave the co-op, those shares will be paid back to the household.
Leaves of Absence
Going on a trip? If you’ll be away from the Co-op for eight weeks or more, give the managers four weeks notice and your service charge will be waived for the time you’re gone.
Leaving the Co-op
If you decide not to be a part of the Co-op, you must give the managers four weeks notice about your leaving. The shares that you have paid will be returned to you as soon as possible, with a maximum of a year to return them back by.
