The Merc Co+op is proud to offer a number of discounts to our owners.
Owner discounts include owner-specific savings during our twice annual Owner Appreciation Days, which are two week periods within the months of April and November. At that time, owners can save up to 20% on one shopping trip.
Senior Owner Discount
The Merc Co+op is pleased to offer a 5% discount to senior owners aged 62 and up each and every Tuesday. We are proud to be one of the only grocery stores in town that offer a discount to seniors as well as shoppers on a limited income. For more information on Senior Savings Tuesday, co-op ownership and other programs, speak with a cashier, email email@example.com or call our Owner Services Coordinator at 785-843-8544.
MercShare Ownership and Discount
At The Merc Co+op, we believe that everyone deserves access to healthy, high-quality foods and products that support a robust and sustainable local food economy as well as a community based on hospitality, generosity and care for the environment.
As a consumer-owned co-op we welcome all community members to buy a share in the business and actively engage in the democratic business model. To further encourage and assist in that, MercShare and MercShare+ was designed, allowing us to reduce the cost barriers to ownership and healthful eating, and to provide owners with practical solutions that don’t sacrifice their values or their budget.
Co-op shoppers currently enrolled in the Kansas Food Assistance Program* (formerly Food Stamps, SNAP) and/or Women, Infants and Children (WIC) are eligible for the MercShare ownership subsidy; and, co-op owners are eligible for MercShare+, a 10% discount on all purchases.
