Summer 2018 Owner Drive
Ownership sits at the heart of Wheatsville Food Co-op – it’s what makes us very different from other businesses and we are over 22,000 owners strong! We are hosting an Owner Drive in July to spread the love to more Austinites!!! The Owner Drive starts Friday, July 13 and ends Sunday, July 22. Become a fully invested owner of the co-op and receive a super cool “I ❤ my co-op bag” and 10% OFF Coupon!
There are lots of economic benefits when you join the co-op. Owners get loads of exclusive offers, along with co-op wide deals for everyone. We also have Owner Appreciation Days twice a year where owners receive 20% off all shopping trips made during these days. New owners will be ready to take advantage of Owner Appreciation Days in October. Just that savings alone can pay for the cost of the investment in the co-op. It pays for itself!
No one person owns the co-op, we ALL own the co-op and TOGETHER
we make a difference! With our profit we invest in:
- Livable Wages & Benefits
- Green Energy
- Local food producers & growers
- Austin’s independent business community
- Local non-profits, community groups, & events
- Building & supporting more cooperative businesses
- Creating a great grocery store for all shoppers

- more local, organic, sustainable food,
