Life goes in cycles, and we’re pleased to say that the Market’s financial picture is looking good.
The Market’s Board has the authority to adjust member and staff benefits, as needed, for the health of the coop. That phrase, “health of the coop,” is important. It gives flexibility to the Board to act in our collective best interest.
Eighteen months ago, the Board voted to reduce the discount for gold–level members while keeping blue–level benefits the same. There were also modest reductions in staff health benefits.
Our good news now: the financial footing of the store feels solid again, so benefits have just been returned to their former levels. Blue–level members continue to receive a 5% discount, as they always have. The gold–level discount has been returned to its original 15%. Staff health benefits have returned to their prior levels as well.
Thanks to everyone who has made this possible.
