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. Our mission as a cooperative is to offer affordable supplies and books while remaining convenient for its members.
The co-op values
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 Cost of the Membership
For 20$, you can become a member of our co-op. You will benefit from a variety of discounts and have access to our promotions. Those discounts apply on books as well as merchandise. When you cancel your membership, you will receive 10$ back! In other words, if you remember to come back to cancel your membership, it would really only cost you 10$ in the first place.
For example, when you by come in store to buy your textbooks, your purchase will cover the 20$ charge of the membership IF you buy all your books at once.
Support your local co-op and become a member at Jake's!
