Given the risk, why should community members purchase memberships now?
Because your contribution is what will make this happen. Every business startup contains risk, but nothing significant is ever achieved without it. For the price of a few bags of groceries, you’ll be helping to start a significant community asset. You’ll be part of a fun, smart group that’s trying to make things better. You’ll be able to participate in special members-only events and invest more in the co-op through loans. Plus you’ll be able to take advantage of special Co-op member discounts at local businesses. Maybe best of all, you can become a part of the Founding Team and help with startup events – even run for a director’s position at the next election. This way you can help minimize our risk by being a part of the process.
