Your Ownership Impact
Because it is OUR store, our collective ownership creates the Co-op. Growth in the number of owners allows development to continue: 600 co-owners were needed to look for a location; 750 co-owners needed to announce a potential location; 1,100 co-owners needed to launch the capital campaign; 1,500 co-owners needed to open our doors!
The dollars you invest as an owner build our community and help fund the start-up process. The more owner-based capital Wasatch Cooperative Market has, the less we’ll need to borrow and the sooner owners can receive patronage refunds.
