Red River Co-op is a different kind of business. And that difference begins with membership.
You don’t need to be a member to shop at Red River Co-op, but you’ll be missing out on the benefits of belonging to our business.
At Red River Co-op, membership isn’t a rewards program. It means you own part of our co-op. As an owner, you have the ability to participate in the democratic decision-making process by asking questions, voting on resolutions, electing board members or even sitting on the board yourself.
Each year, Red River Co-op returns a part of their profits back to you — our members — in cash based on how much you shop with them and how well the business performs. Over the past five years, over $140 million as been returned to Red River Co-op members in cash. Some profit is returned as equity, which is like a savings account or RRSP that grows over time.
We’re more than just a place to shop. We’re a business built to support our community and meet the needs of our members.
Becoming a member is easy. You can:

$5 is the one-time cost to be a lifetime member of Red River Co-op. No annual fees, no renewals.
