Co-op Membership

Cooperatives cannot exist without members. Literally. Members own their co-ops. Co-ops exist to provide products and services the members want. Joining a co-op means becoming an owner, a shareholder. You only join once. Your membership lasts as long as you shop at the Wedge.

Everyone is welcome to shop at our co-op member or not and everyone is welcome to join. We think the financial benefits of membership make joining nearly irresistible.

Wedge Member Benefits:

  • Coupons for New Member-Owners
  • Member Discounts that save you up to $45 every year
  • Monthly specials for member-owners
  • Four Coupon Books every year, distributed at the store
  • A percentage of store profit distributed to member-owners

How To Join:

  • Fill out an application available at the Customer Service Counter. (Sorry, we cannot take online applications.)
  • Pick a payment plan for your eight shares of co-op stock.
  • Buy all 8 shares at once ($80) OR buy 2 shares every three months for a year ($20 x 4).
    We will remind you when it is time to purchase your next 2 shares, until you are paid in full. Benefits begin with the first payment.

The Technicalities

A membership belongs to the person(s) who signs the application form. Spouses, partners, children and other household members are welcome to use the member number when shopping. Only the signer(s) may exercise the full rights of membership.

*To withdraw your membership: Stock Refund Request forms are available at the Customer Service Desk. The co-op will repurchase the shares, subject to the provisions in the Bylaws.
