Co-op Membership

When you become a member of the Co-op, you become an owner of the business! This entitles you and your family to sweet perks and benefits you won't find anywhere else.

How to Join

Co-op shares are $5 each. Membership requires 10 shares of stock. You may join as a Member for a one-time investment of $50, or as a Subscriber* with no initial investment and potential to earn your shares over time.

Pro tip! Members get more benefits than Subscribers. Learn more below and apply here.


If you own 10 shares, you are a Member. Approved Cardholders—including your partner and immediate family members in our database—can also enjoy the perks and benefits that come with your membership.

Member Benefits

  • Vote for important issues and proposed changes to the business
