One Co-op, Two Stores Owner Drive!
Help us build a better future together during our One Co-op, Two Stores Owner Drive!
Become an owner now and you'll get exclusive discounts, bonus coupons, and automatic entry into a number of prize drawings! A big part of what made our Northampton store so successful was that thousands of local community members joined the co-op before we even opened our doors. Having this community ownership support before we opened was key to our resilience and ability to succeed as a start-up business.
As a co-op owner, you will join others who are just like you and become part of a community working together to build a just marketplace. By purchasing an ownership share, you are investing in the financing of the co-op and have the opportunity to participate in its continued development and share in its success. You will have a voice in the co-op's future and work together with us to support our community's need for a healthy and sustainable local food system.
There are so many great reasons to join the co-op, especially right now during our One Co-op, Two Stores Owner Drive! By becoming an owner, you will:
- Receive a welcome package with over $25 in coupons, plus extras for joining during our Owner Drive
- Receive a "Thank You" coupon for 10% OFF one shopping trip

Are you already an owner? Help find others to join!
Your help inviting new co-op owners to join is really important! You are the roots of the grassroots cooperative organizing that is required for growing the co-op movement and building our local resilience and vitality. We need your help now to support the opening of our Easthampton store. Cooperative outreach can be a rewarding experience. You get to connect with people you know about why the co-op is important to you and your community. It is easy to invite people to join a cause that means so much to you. You can help open the co-op's doors for your friends and neighbors so they too can become part of something truly special. There is strength in the community and you can help to build it!
This is really important, and there are prizes for your successes in adding new co-op owners—some pretty fabulous prizes! For example, if you refer five new owners, you'll win a $25 gift card and if you refer ten new owners, you'll win a $100 gift card as our thanks to you for helping welcome new owners to River Valley Co-op. And for each new owner you find you'll be entered into a monthly drawing for a $500 gift card.
