In profitable years, member-owners receive dividends in proportion to their patronage of the store.

The East Aurora Co-op Market is a start-up business that requires member equity to cover opening expenses. Please note that while member equity is potentially refundable, it is at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Member equity refunds cannot be made until the cooperative is operating at a stable level of profit.
