The Sugar Beet Co-op will be a member-owned full-service grocery store in Oak Park, IL opening early 2015.
The Co-op will carry locally and sustainably grown foods, when possible, and be your “one stop shop” for high quality foods all year round.
Food Co-ops are different than conventional grocery stores!
All of the profit will go back into The Co-op and, when possible, to its members. That means our grocery dollars stay in our communities to help support local businesses and farmers.
Food Co-ops are leaders in sustainability.
The Sugar Beet Co-op will be in a LEED certified, geothermal building at 820 W. Madison in Oak Park. As the store is designed and built-out, every effort is being made to choose environmentally friendly products and finishes. Food Co-ops are super recyclers and our vendors will be encouraged to reduce packaging as much as possible.
The Sugar Beet Co-op is a DEMOCRACY.
The 250 members of The Sugar Beet Co-op have a say in how this store will run, what products will be carried and who is elected to the Board of Directors. With grand opening a year away NOW is the time to get involved!
Membership to The Sugar Beet Co-op is $250 per household and is a one-time fee. There are monthly installment options through PAY PAL as well as reduced membership rates for Seniors, Students and individuals using LINK.<br>Go to <a data-cke-saved-href="https://sugarbeetcoop.squarespace.com/membership" href="https://sugarbeetcoop.squarespace.com/membership">Membership Page</a>.
