Fast Fact About Cooperatives #1

Co-op Month Fast Facts

Co-ops Strengthen Communities

You’ve no doubt heard that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. The same is true for co-ops, in a way. Because cooperatives are owned by the customers they serve, any profits from the business are returned to co-op members as year-end patronage or are reinvested in the business, not sent out of town to distant, outside investors. That money stays in the communities where co-ops do business, helping to fuel the local economy. Very neighborly for sure.
