FAQs

Do I have to be a member to shop here?

Nope, you can shop at the Co-op without being a member, you just receive extra perks if you become one.
 

I heard the Co-op is expensive. Do you have any lower price products?

That’s a common perception that was true years ago. But we’ve actually lowered our prices by up to 50% on 500+ staple groceries through our Co-op Basics program.

When comparing organic to organic, we are often better priced on items than other stores in town and support a wider selection of locally grown items as well.

Check out our Co+op Deals for even more discounted groceries.

We also support the Double Up Food Bucks program where low-income families can earn an extra local produce dollar for every produce dollar they spend. Learn about Double Up.
 

How is the Co-op different from a regular grocery store?

Great question! The biggest difference is that we are owned by over 30,000 shoppers which has allowed us to source groceries in a radically different way. We support more local growers and producers than any other store in the corridor. We have the largest selection of organic options – storewide. All of our meats are humanely raised and sustainably fished. And none of our products feature artificial colors, flavors or ingredients. For more information read Why We Love Being a Co-op.
