When you become an owner of Green Top Grocery, you actually become part of something special. Green Top is owned and operated by people just like you – members of the community willing to work together to provide access to local, healthy food.

Co-ops exist to serve the needs of the owners rather than to generate a profit. When the co-op does make a profit, it is cycled back into Green Top Grocery or if sufficient profit is made, it is given back to the owners in the form of a Patronage Dividend.

Your ownership investment in the co-op and is what makes Green Top Grocery community-owned! It provides working capital and is not a fee, or dues, but an actual share of Green Top Grocery. This also means it can be sold back to us at any time. Ownership is a one-time investment of $200. We know $200 is not small chunk of change, however we have a plan for monthly payments and you are able create the plan that works for you! This is more than investing in a grocery store, this is an investment in what you believe in.

Co-op ownership is voluntary and all shoppers are welcome at Green Top Grocery!
