Ownership made possible for everyone.
The Cook County Whole Foods Co-op was born on a homestead named, Castle Yonder, just outside of Grand Marais, MN in the late 1960s. Several families in the Good Harbor Hill neighborhood were looking for a simple life on the land. This lifestyle included healthy, inexpensive foods. True to our roots, Cook County Whole Foods Co-op still celebrates these values. That’s why we now offer The Good Harbor Hill Discount to owners old and new alike.
To become an owner at the Cook County Whole Foods Co-op, everyone must pay the one-time cost of $120. It can be paid in 10 quarterly payments of $12 dollars, but this might seem out of reach for some. We understand, and the Good Harbor Hill Scholarship is our response. Pay $24 toward your ownership, and we’ll cover the rest. With the GHH Scholarship, you can become an owner in a manner you can afford today.
How to apply:
1. To qualify for the GHH Scholarship, you must apply for ownership at our Co-op, and make a minimum of two, $12 quarterly payments (or a single payment of $24). Ownership benefits start with the first $12 equity payment.
2. Complete this form and return it to the Co-op.
3. Recipients remain anonymous, except for the minimal staff needed to process your information.
4. If you qualify, you will be automatically enrolled to receive the Good Harbor Hill Discount (GHH). The GHH Coupon is a 10% discount on your shopping visits, excluding certain items.
Owners with scholarship equity who choose to terminate ownership will receive a refund, pursuant to Co-op bylaws, equal to their individual investment. Scholarship equity from terminated ownerships returns to Cook County Whole Foods Co-op and is not transferable.
