Mutual Social and Economic Benefit

A message that bears repeating: support your locally owned coop. It might be a health food store, it might be some other venture. A coop is connected to thousands of other independent businesses, organizations and people, uniting together to compete against the big corporations.

"If you can shop at a coop in your town, more money stays local, more jobs are created, and your community grows again." this video reminds us.

Wikipedia's definition:

A cooperative ("coop"), co-operative ("co-op"), or co÷perative ("co÷p") is an autonomous association of persons who voluntarily cooperate for their mutual social, economic, and cultural benefit.[1] Cooperatives include non-profit community organizations and businesses that are owned and managed by the people who use its services (a consumer cooperative) and/or by the people who work there (a worker cooperative) or by the people who live there (a housing cooperative).
