Ownership

Becoming an owner of Harmony Co-op is easy and represents an investment in a community owned business that is grounded in local commerce and sustainable sourcing. The Owner’s primary function is to participate in the ownership, decisions and patronage of the cooperative so that it effectively meets the needs of the members. As in any worthwhile organization, the benefits enjoyed by cooperative members are directly proportional to their participation and involvement.

Become an Owner

 

The first step to becoming a Harmony Natural Foods Co-op owner is to complete an ownership contract in-store and submit it to the customer service desk. You will be issued an owner number at that time and the cashier will be happy to assist you in your stock investment.

You will have two options when purchasing your ownership at Harmony Co-op: 

  • You can pay the $120 Class A Stock investment in full.

  • Or you can opt into a contracted payment plan where you put $20 down and commit to paying $10 per month for one year (There is a $10 payment plan processing fee)

Upon purchasing a Harmony Co-op ownership, you will be immediately be given an Owner Packet detailing your investment and a Harmony Co-op reusable chico bag.
