Buffalo Street Books Owner Share


Buffalo Street Books Owner Share: paid in ten monthly Installments


Owners make a one-time purchase of an ownership share. This $250 share can be made all at once or in installments over 10 months. Owners are able to run and vote for the co-op's executive board, and may vote on policy-level decisions related to the co-op. They are also entitled to a year-end patronage dividend, a portion of the cooperative's yearly profits based on the individual owner's patronage throughout the year. In addition, the co-op regularly arranges special offers and benefits to its owners including signed editions, special events and discounts.

To learn more about the principles of cooperative businesses, you can visit the National Cooperative Business Association website
