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.
