WHAT IS A CO-OP?
•A cooperative is a special form of business owned and managed by the people who provide and/or use goods and services. Resources are pooled to satisfy a common goal as economically and efficiently as possible.
•As a locally-owned business, co-ops are committed to the people and the communities they serve. Member/Owners have a voice in what is available for purchase, as well as in the overall organization of their particular co-op. Member/Owners get the most buying power for their money, and the money stays in the community, contributing to its economic strength.
•At Sevananda Natural Foods Market Member/Owners literally own the store, so membership benefits are much more than just the discount!
