Springing Into Membership Benefits

Jules Katz, Membership Coordinator

It’s spring! In the colder months, members told us they discovered this great additional benefit of putting the North Coast Co-op member card to good use—scraping morning frost off a windshield. Hopefully we won’t need this for at least another eight months, but there are other ways you can use your card! 

At participating businesses in our Business Partner Program, Co-op members receive special discounts! Try a new activity like jiu jitsu, feel good with a massage or stretching through a yoga session, get discounts on some new spring gear or clothing, and surprise someone with a spring bouquet from one of our listed florists. Our website has a complete list of participating businesses and their discounts. Or, pick up a Business Partner Program flier at Customer Service in the stores. 

Below are all the other great benefits of being a North Coast Co-op member—thanks for being a part of our family! Let us know if you have any questions or comments about your membership via membership@northcoast.coop. We love hearing from you!
