A cooperative, first and foremost
North Coast Co-op is a community-owned cooperative grocery store located in the far reaches of northern California, surrounded by redwood trees where the mountains meet the sea. We feel fortunate to live in a place of immense beauty while serving the needs of our Humboldt County community with one location in Eureka and one in Arcata.
A cooperative is defined as an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically controlled enterprise. As a cooperative business, we adhere to seven Cooperative Principles.
Our cooperative began as a food buying club in 1972.
Our stores in Eureka and Arcata are open from 7am – 9pm daily.
As a co-op, we are owned by more than 17,000 community members.
The Co-op is governed by a Board of Directors elected by our members.
We are the only grocer in Humboldt County to be certified organic.
We are looking for fun, hardworking people with a passion for food.
