Purchase a Fair Share

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.
