MercShare Ownership and Discounts
Food for all.
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.
We enjoy passing savings along to our shoppers. To do so, we often participate in a shared coupon mail packet that is delivered to households throughout Lawrence. Watch for our coupon to take advantage of big savings.
Online versions of these coupons not valid. One coupon per shopper. Coupon offer applies before tax. Not valid with any other offers or discounts. May not be used to purchase non-taxable items, alcohol, catering orders, Happy Food Co meal kits, gift cards or owner shares.
