Joining the co-op is easy! Read below for an overview of how it works and the benefits.
A member makes a total equity payment of $400, payable all at once or in installments as low as $25/month. This payment entitles a household to full membership, with all rights and privileges as an equity shareholder/owner of the co-op. This is not a yearly payment. A household includes everyone residing together at one address.
Members will have an equal say in the direction and development of the store and its services. And while the store will be open to the public, without members, the co-op will not exist. Without growing membership, the co-op will not grow.
Members will have exclusive rights to shopping discounts and services, so they will save money. Members may receive patronage refunds when the co-op has a surplus of funds. If you move, you may apply for a refund.
On the next page you will be shown the bylaws of the Ambler Food Co-op. In order to become a member we are asking you to read and agree to them.
