FAQs

What is cash back and equity?

Local Co-ops share any profits realized in a year with their members. The Board of Directors approves an amount, which is returned to members as a percentage of their yearly purchases. Members will receive a portion of this in cash (amount must exceed $20) and the rest will be deposited into an equity savings account that grows over time.
