Co-op ownership is voluntary and all shoppers are welcome at Ozark Natural Foods. However, there are some special benefits that we offer to co-op owners!
Current owner benefits, as determined by the Board of Directors, include:
Owner Appreciation Weekends: Two times a year, owners can stock up with 15% off EVERYTHING in the store (no exclusions).
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.
Co+op Deals sales: Every two weeks, we offer a new collection of sale items for popular products and new items to try. Co+op Deals are sales for everyone. They run in two or three week cycles.
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.
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 quarterly newsletter and features information about the co-op, recipes, tips on healthy living, upcoming events, and advice on how to save money when you shop for groceries. To receive our newsletter via email, click here.
