Our lowest prices, every day, on a variety of popular grocery and household staples.
It is possible to eat well and save money!
To make your dollars stretch further at the Co-op, we significantly lowered prices on more than 100 products throughout our stores with our new Co+op Basics program.
Co+op Basics offer our lowest prices, every day, on a variety of popular grocery and household staples—the building blocks for hearty meals and day-to-day living. Look for the purple Co+op Basics signs on products like pasta, beans, butter, cleaning supplies, baby formula, flour, milk, eggs, and more.
Co+op Basics has now replaced Co+op Essentials—a similar program we introduced a couple of years ago. Both pricing programs offered everyday low prices throughout the store, but Co+op Basics has some big advantages.
- The number of low price items has significantly increased.
- Savings throughout our stores, look for the purple signs.
- More people will have access to healthy food. The low price is the same for everyone, whether they are members or not.
- AND member-owners can save even more money when
they special order by the case at the new low price.
Don’t worry, we aren’t paying our farmers or employees any less.
We’re working with food co-ops across the country, using the strength of our group buying power to negotiate lower prices for all co-op shoppers.
The program may look different at other co-ops, but in our stores you’ll find more than 100 Co+op Basics items, and the selection will continue to grow over the next few months. Look for Co+op Basics when you shop, or ask a friendly staff member to help you locate these money-saving products.
Every time you shop at the Co-op you vote with your dollars to support our local community and participate in our BIG goals to grow the co-op economy, grow our local food system, and increase healthy food access.
Thanks to money-saving programs like Co+op Basics we don’t need to sacrifice our budgets to live our values.
Co-op staff is always working to bring you the best prices on the quality products Co-op shoppers want and expect (read our price comparison story to see how we stack up against other grocers).
We look forward to serving you and making your Co-op experience the best it can be.
