Current owner benefits, as determined by the Board of Directors, include:
Owner Appreciation Weekends: Three times a year, owners can stock up with 10% off all purchases, except for Co+op Deals sale items, which are already discounted. Go here for a list of dates and special order deadlines.
Senior Discount: Owners 55 years and older receive 5% off every Wednesday and Thursday.
Student Discount: U of A, JBU, NWACC and UAMS student-owners receive 5% off every Tuesday and Saturday.
Owner Bonus Buy discounts: Look for the red “Owner Bonus Buy” tags! Every month 90-100 items go on sale for owners only. Our Owner Bonus Buys are listed monthly in our newsletter.
Enjoy discounts at other local businesses: Through our Neighbors Serving Neighbors program, we are able to offer discounts at other local businesses. To see a full list of businesses and the discounts they offer our owners, visit our NSN page.
Share in the Co-op’s profit: When The Co-op makes a profit, owners receive a portion of that profit through Patronage Refunds, based on owners’ individual annual spending. The more you shop at The Co-op, the more profit you’ll get back.
Receive coupon books: Just ask for a Co+op Deals coupon book at the Owner Services Desk. Every two months, we offer a new collection of coupons for popular products and new items to try. Four times a year, a supplemental coupon book is mailed directly to your home.
Take part in grassroots democracy: Owners democratically participate in the Co-op by electing our Board of Directors, holding office and joining committees. Only owners can run for elected Board positions.
Receive The Nutshell newsletter: The Nutshell is our monthly newsletter and features monthly Owner Bonus Buys, information about The Co-op, additional tips on healthy eating and advice on how to save money when you shop for groceries. To receive our newsletter via email, click here.
Special advertising rates in the newsletter: Co-op owners who advertise in The Nutshell get discounts on our standard advertising rates. As an owner, you can share information about your business or organization with over 9,000 fellow owners, while benefiting from special discounted advertising rates.
