The short answer is, FIRST, become a member and buy a share.
It takes member/owners and support to create and support a Food Co-op.
SECOND, participate in our capital campaign! Stay tuned for more details on this exciting milestone.
Because the capital to open a cooperatively-owned grocery comes from individuals across the community instead of a single private investor or corporation, we rely on member investments (YOU!) to provide the necessary funds to open our store–it is our member-owner equity that will leverage further financing to open the doors. We have a current goal of 1,200 member shares sold, so the best way to accelerate the opening process is to become a member.
