Working Members have volunteered their time to the Co-op for 45 years!


Our staff works in conjunction with the working members to meet the needs of the store: packaging, pricing, cleaning, and date checking are some of the most important jobs!

Working Membership at the Co-op

What is a working membership?

Some Co-op members choose to support the Co-op as working members. Working members help the store by packaging products, refilling bulk bins, date checking, cleaning, and pricing items.

What's the minimum time requirement?

Working members perform 4 hours of work per month, which is critically necessary to the functioning of the Co-op.  

What are the perks of being a working member?

Working members get the satisfaction of knowing their efforts help ensure that the Co-op will continue to serve our community. Because the Co-op's working members are absolutely crucial to the success of the Co-op, working members are held to a high standard of professionalism and performance.

While meeting others and having fun is a happy by-product of your working membership, satisfactory performance of the job is required. 

Working members also receive a 12% discount on products at the register.

How do I become a working member?

To become a working member, you must join the Co-op, and participate in a 1 hour Working Member Orientation. Once this is complete, you can sign up for your first shift!  Click here to inquire about working membership and upcoming Co-op working member orientations.

Already a working member?

Shift sign-ups have moved back into the store.
Pencil and paper work much better for our scheduling purposes!

You don't have to be a working member to support the Co-op.


In fact, nearly 80% of the organization's members are supporting members.
