Giving Ownership as a gift

If you would like to give the gift of ownership, please contact Customer Service at the East store (608-251-6776) or West store (608-284-7800).  We can create a gift card with an amount that you would like to give the recipient toward ownership, as well as a packet of information so the recipient can easily become an owner of the Co-op.

Ownership in the Williamson Street Grocery Co-op is achieved by purchasing a Fair Share. Your Fair Share is a capital investment in your Co-op, like a share of stock in a company. As an Owner, you'll receive Owner-only sale prices and other benefits at both our Madison and Middleton locations. We encourage our Owners to attend Co-op events and to participate in Co-op committees and vote in elections to protect and enhance their investment.
