It’s simple to make this healthy investment! Just follow these simple steps:
- Complete a Member Application and Agreement by printing and filling it out now or at the Customer Service Desk in our store. Pay as little as $25 towards the $300 FAIR SHARE investment (fully refundable) plus a $5 processing fee (nonrefundable). If you wish to pay the $300 all at once, you will receive a $30 Co-op gift card. If you wish to make investment payments, you’ll pay $25 every six months until you reach the $300 FAIR SHARE investment.
- You may add one household shopper to your member account for an additional $5 card fee. Your household shopper will receive the same benefits when shopping.
- An SNFC staff member will issue you a member card as well as a card for any household shoppers you may have.
- Present your member card every time you shop to have your patronage tracked and to receive any applicable discounts.
