In an effort to help reduce any financial burden of the $100 ownership equity requirement, an owner can agree to apply their annual patronage dividend(s) towards their $100 equity investment until it is paid in full. Upon payment of the full ownership equity, regular issuance of the patronage dividend will resume. If you would like to have your equity payments paid by your patronage dividend(s) earnings, please visit the information desk to sign up and sign the authorization page.
Once your application has been reviewed and approved, the 10% CAN discount will be associated with your ownership. The discount will be automatically applied at the registers during checkout.
Annual Enrollment is one year from the application date. Please provide an email address and you will be notified of your renewal deadline a month before it expires. Please re-enroll before the deadline to avoid interruption of your discount benefit.
Please allow 3-5 business days for processing.
