Becoming an Owner

Right now is the most important time to become an owner because the longer you wait to join, the longer it will take to open the store. By becoming a co-op owner now, you will play an integral role in the process of bringing a full-service grocery store that offers food grown and produced by your neighbors to Silverton.

Buying a share is easy! It’s a one-time investment of $150. We also offer payment plans if that is a better fit for you. We want ownership to be accessible to anyone who wants to become an owner. A founding ownership share of $300 is also available ($150 ownership share, plus $150 of additional support). Founding owners will receive in-store recognition.
