What is a co-op?


A co-operative is an autonomous association of people who unite voluntarily to meet their economic, social and cultural needs as well as their dreams through a business which is collectively owned and wherein power is exercised democratically. 


The co-op values

  • Self-help
  • Self-responsibility
  • Democracy
  • Equality
  • Equity
  • Solidarity


Our Mission

Jake's Co-op mission as a cooperative is to offer affordable supplies and books while remaining convenient for its members.


Why should I become a member?

  • To save on every single purchase
  • To support a student-run and owned business
  • Because the co-op gives back to its community
  • Because I can get involved in the management of the co-op by sitting on the board of directors

The Membership

For 20$ you can become a member of our co-op. You benefit from a variety of discounts and have access to our promotions. Those discounts apply on books as well as merchandise. Books usually get a 5 to 10% discount, while our retail supplies' discounts can go up to 15%. The membership lasts until cancelled and it is a one time fee! To add on top of this, you also benefit from a 10% off on speciality beverages at the Jake's Café. You can also cancel your membership at any time to receive 10$ back! Just so you can get an idea, people can save around 6$ simply by buying a pair of lab glasses as well as one lab coat.

Support your local co-op and become a member at Jake's!
