Co-ops Build Community

 

Co-ops are everywhere!

A cooperative is formed by a community to solve a common need.

Cooperatives are equally owned and controlled by the people who use their services (aka members).  They provide nearly every good and service imaginable, and they are a great choice for buying local and keeping jobs in the community.  They exist in nearly all industries and business sectors.

A cooperative’s sole purpose is to maximize benefits to its members (THAT’S YOU!), rather than maximize benefits to its shareholders.
