There are two striking differences between Wasatch Cooperative Market and a conventional grocery store:
1. The Co-op reflects the values and desires of our community because hundreds–at some point, thousands–of community members own and control it.
2. The Co-op is committed to the Seven Cooperative Principles: voluntary and open membership; democratic member control; member economic participation; autonomy and independence; education, training, and information; cooperation among cooperatives; and concern for the community.
