Membership Benefits

Member-Owner Benefits

On the surface, co-ops may look like any other business, but it’s what goes on behind the scenes that makes the dfference. Along with a Mission, Oryana operates in accordance with the 7 Cooperative Principles, ensuring its Owners have a say in the decisions the business makes, and 6 Ends Policies, that help guide everyday decisions. Rather than rewarding outside investors with profits, a co-op returns surplus revenue to its Owners and its community. This cooperative approach to business results in a powerful economic force that benefits the co-op, its Owners and the communities it serves. If you choose to become an Owner for $15/year (with a one-time $5 administrativve fee), you'll receive the following benefits:

Owner Anytime Discounts
Once you become an Owner, you can take 5% off 6 transactions of your choosing every year. Have family coming over? Refilling the fridge after a long absence? It’s up to you when you choose to save! 

Owner Appreciation Month
Four months out of the year, Owners can save 10% off one transaction of their choosing. Now’s the time to stock up on those delicious pantry staples – at a great discount! Our Owner Appreciation Months are February, May, September, and December.

Pre-Order Discounts
Buy a case of your favorite product and save 10-25%! Only our Owners are eligible to receive our pre-order discount on special orders of large quantities or specialty products. (Check with Customer Service for more details.) 

Community Partner Discounts
The co-op has some of the coolest friends. Your Owner card is your ticket to extra savings at dozens of area businesses exclusive to Oryana Owners.   See the list here.

Discount Owner Prices on cooking classes and other classes offered at Oryana.

Fresh Press Quarterly
Oryana member-owners receive a free subscription to Fresh Press, the co-op's quarterly newsletter, loaded with news, recipes and insights. Member-owners can also request email updates with the latest on upcoming events, specials and local produce availability.

Co-op Governance
Your ownership gives you a vote and a voice. As a member-owner, you can run and vote for the Board of Directors and make proposals for the rest of the ownership to vote on.

Access to Patronage Refund - Because you Own it, Oryana, when business results allow, may choose to refund a percentage of the purchases you made at your business back to you at the end of the year. It’s the cooperative way of supporting our Owners who support their co-op.   More about patronage>
