Capital Campaign

Assabet Co-op Market - Pete and Rick

Pete and Rick, Owners #11 and #266

Our $2 million Capital Campaign has launched, and we’re already approaching $1.2M in Owner loans!

The Capital Campaign gives all Owners the opportunity to invest in our community-owned grocery store through interest-paying loans, matching traditional bank financing and building a thriving business that’s around for decades.

Who Can Participate?

All Co-op Owners who reside in Massachusetts and are 18 years of age or older can invest.

What Will My Investment Do?

Your investment will be used to fund your store, from equipment to grocery departments to community gathering space. And your Co-op will have a massive impact on local farms, local businesses, the local economy, and our community.

Your Investment’s Impact

How Do I Invest?

Owners will receive their Capital Campaign information by mail and can request an investment prospectus by e-mailing campaign@assabetmarket.coop.

How Much Can I Earn on My Investment?

Owners can earn up to 5% interest on their loans. And unlike Wall Street investments, we will see our investments make a real impact right here in our community, from the local tradespeople who build our store to the local farmers and employees who fill our shelves and nourish our families. Complete terms and conditions can be found in our investment prospectus.

Our Co-op, Our Community

Why invest in your Co-op? Owner loans match bank funding, decreasing our risk and ensuring that interest payments go back to you, our Owners, instead of to some far-off corporation. It’s all part of our mission to build a thriving local community and economy.

In the end, it’s about our community, our families’ food, and our values. What could be more important?

Investing in the Co-op will make a meaningful impact on so many things we care about: local farms, the environment, equal access to food, and of course, our community. We’re proud to be part of the Capital Campaign to open our Co-op!
