Membership is not Required to Shop at the Co-op!
For just $25 per individual 18 and older, you can become a Level 1 lifetime member of the Co-Op. During your first year of lifetime membership, you will receive Level 2 membership benefits.
Level 2 members are the LIFE blood of the Co-op. They support the Co-op by annually paying an additional $10 Capital Investment Fund (CIF) fee. Level 2 members are rewarded with in store member sale prices.
Memberships can be purchased at the Co-op. Purchase of a Level 1 membership is required; purchase of a Level 2 membership is optional.

A co-op is defined as "an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically controlled enterprise."
Co-op values are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-op members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.
Ferry County Co-op's Guiding Documents
Like Co-op's world wide, our Co-op is guided by our Articles of Incorporation (Washington State), our member approved bylaws, International Cooperative Alliance Identity & Values, and by the 7 Cooperative Principles.
