Who can shop at the co-op, will it be Owners only?
No! Everyone is welcome to shop at the co-op! Owners will receive the added benefits of patronage dividends and the right to get a vote in affairs of the cooperative. The co-op Board (which will be made up of and elected by Owners) will decide, as the co-op matures, what the differences and benefits will be regarding Owners and non-Owners. It is likely that, in addition to patronage dividends, Owners will be eligible for special offers and discounts.
