How is a co-op grocery store different from regular grocery stores?


A co-op grocery store is owned and operated by the people that shop there. Grocery co-ops have values determined by their owners, but some common features of grocery cooperatives are:

  • Social responsibility
  • Support for local/ organic/ independent producers
  • Healthful foods
  • Clear labeling and reliable information about the products sold
  • Concern for the environment
  • Care or the community- making it a better place to live
  • Fair wages for employees
