Lawrence's cooperative, community-owned grocery store


The Merc Co+op provides our community a place to shop, gather, eat and learn by offering real food and sustainable products at reasonable prices through cooperative ownership and responsible commerce.
Everyone can shop at The Merc Co+op and anyone can become an owner. Ownership is an investment in a consumer-owned cooperative business that brings health to your local community. The Merc Co+op is currently owned by more than 7,000 of your friends and neighbors who have chosen to invest in a local business that is guided by policies that prioritize the well-being of its customers and community.
