Benefits of Membership

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

Joining North Coast Co-op has many benefits aside from belonging to an organization that promotes and supports the sustainable development of our community, including local agriculture, food producers and other local products.

Here are the benefits you can look forward to upon becoming a member-owner:

  • One vote in all matters submitted to a vote of the membership, including board of directors elections.

  • Receive a Patronage Refund when declared by the board of directors. Patronage Refunds are a form of profit sharing that is a result of a profitable fiscal year. Learn more on our Patronage Refund page.

  • Receive a Member-Owner Appreciation Discount on one transaction once a month (subject to change).

  • Receive a discount on Cooking Classes.

  • Serve on our board of directors, or one of its standing committees.

  • Attend our Annual Membership Meeting.

  • Receive an introduction to our Co-op News—a publication containing financial, operational, nutrition and food safety, and sales information.  

  • Receive notifications when items that you’ve purchased at North Coast Co-op have been recalled. Find more information on our Food Recalls page.

  • Cash personal checks for up to $60 above the amount of purchase.

  • Cash government and payroll checks for up to $1,000.
