what is a co-op?
A cooperative, or co-op, buys and sells products or services just like any other business. The difference is a co-op is owned and governed by its members, the people who use it, rather than by stockholders. And, profits are reinvested in the co-op or distributed to its members. Cooperatives adhere to a set of seven cooperative principles that guide how the business is run and how decisions are made.
