Become a Member-Owner

Everyone can shop, but we would love for you to join!

Member-owners are what make us a co-op! By joining our co-op, you are contributing to an organization that strives to make a difference locally and globally.

There are many benefits of becoming a member-owner. Learn more on our Membership Benefits page. There are also several investment levels. Learn more about the different ways to invest on our Investing in Community page. No matter the investment chosen, each membership gets one vote and has a voice in North Coast Co-op policies and practices. 

How to Join
Join today by picking up a Membership Application the next time you are shopping and give the completed application to Customer Service, along with a minimum of $25 for your Membership Class A Share*. In a few weeks you will receive your membership card. Show it every time you go through the check stand to earn patronage and receive other benefits. Member-owners may withdraw their membership, and receive the full amount of their share investment minus a $5 processing fee, in accordance with North Coast Co-op Bylaws and withdrawal policy.

Upon becoming a member-owner of North Coast Co-op, you will receive a free reusable shopping bag, a coupon for $1.50 off of a bakery item and other valuable coupons. 

To keep your membership active, you must purchase at least $50 in products each fiscal year (March – April), in accordance with North Coast Co-op Bylaws.

We would love for you to join and look forward to seeing you soon!
