We’re a group of Clifton residents working hard to bring a full-service grocery store back to the heart of Clifton. The empty IGA is bad for our neighborhood. It hurts the residents and it hurts the business district. We cannot afford to wait for someone else to fill the space. Together, we can create the grocery store that our neighborhood needs.
Cooperatives are owned by community members like you and controlled democratically by its consumer-owners. You don’t have to be a worker to be an owner, and you don’t have to be an owner to be a shopper. A cooperative is run like any other grocery store, except that it answers to its consumer-owners.
Cooperatives exist to serve their shoppers, not to make large profits off of them. As such, owners are entitled to patronage refunds each year to ensure they are purchasing at cost. Refunds are sometimes deferred, especially in the early years, to re-invest in the store. But the capital ultimately belongs to the owners.
We can succeed with your support. To get updates on our progress, our fundraising campaigns, and upcoming events, subscribe to our mailing list.
