Why Become a Member-Owner NOW?

First and foremost: you get a cooperative grocery market in your community! Your investment provides the capital to get this store off the ground and open the doors. By investing today, you keep this effort moving forward. You also get the benefit of the Cooperative Business Partner Program which offers discounts and deals at some of your favorite businesses around town, including Squatters, Tin Angel, Pago, Rimini Coffee, Weller Book Works, Brewvies, Sage’s Café, and many more.  

Consumers today readily pay $50 to $100 for the privilege of shopping at big warehouse stores. The reality is that one gets very little in return for that annual fee! The Wasatch Cooperative Market offers conscientious consumers an alternative with a one-time investment in a grocery store that will provide healthy, local and sustainable foods and products for you and your family for years to come. The Co-op will give back to the community in ways that big box and chain health food stores just can’t: economic return to the community, job creation, liveable wages, and local business support—all great reasons to invest! Plus there are the extra benefits, rewards, and democratic control for member-owners. You can become a founding member-owner today—what are you waiting for?  Take advantage of any of our convenient payment plans now (as little as $25 a month!), and make our Co-op a reality!
