The current owner fee is a $50 investment which represents a one-time purchase of an equity share in the Boise Co-op. Each owner household owns one share of equity and has one vote. (A household consists of up to two adults and any number of children under 18.) A non-refundable $15 administrative fee will also be charged when you join. If households divide, only one membership remains.
If you do not wish to pay in full, you can join at our customer service desk and sign up for the “Pay As You Shop Program.” With the Pay As You Shop Program plan, you’ll pay the initial non-refundable administrative fee of $15.00, then each time you shop, a surcharge of 5% of your total purchase will be added to your bill and recorded. This surcharge is credited against the beginning membership share balance of $50.00. When you have paid off your membership share, the surcharge ends, and you will continue to enjoy all the benefits of a Boise Co-op owner. Please visit our Customer Service desk with questions or for further details.
