The Co-op needs you

You’re a fan of the Co-op ...You find a sense of community and solidarity here, unique in the neighbourhood. You would like to get more involved as a member? Now’s the perfect time. 

Objectives: We want to maintain a more consistent inventory and improve our service quality.

Why: We had a tough year full of equipment repairs (our freezer, coffeemaker and some building work). These expenses weren’t planned for in our budget and had a noticeable impact on our cash flow.

Up to 10% off all your purchases!

Want additional discounts at the coop of up to 10%? It's easy as pie. All you'll need is a fidelity account here at the coop. What's a fidelity account, you ask? You advance a certain amount of cash to the coop and we add a percentage to your account based on the amount invested. For example, if you give the coop 500$, your account will be credited 550$.
