Owner Appreciation Weekends

One of the best perks of ownership in the Co-op! Owner Appreciation Weekends are our quarterly way of saying thanks. All owners in good standing receive 10% off their purchases (excluding consignment items). The owner is considered to be in good standing when their owner share payments are current or paid in full.

Bylaws Guide Our Future

Neighborhood Co-op Grocery is proud of our long-standing roots in the Southern Illinois community. We work every day to strengthen our hometown and our local economy. We are committed to doing what's right for the community and our owners in ways that are relevant to the time in which we live.

Bylaws are rules that govern our Board of Directors and guide our future. All bylaws are voted on by our ownership. They are used to shape our future. Get a copy of the Co-op's Bylaws here.

Owner Appreciation

So that we meet the needs of as many owners as possible, we canceled Owner Appreciation Weekend in May. INSTEAD, we are offering owners a 10% off coupon good toward any one transaction you choose during the month of May.


The Co-op understands these are difficult times for many in our community. We want to show our appreciation by allowing owners to shop when you feel most comfortable while enjoying your extra savings.


Owners should have received a 10% off coupon in the mail. If for some reason you did not receive your coupon, please see a staff member or contact the store at 618.529.3533. It might be possible your account isn't up-to-date
