We’re working hard to make investing in the co-op accessible to each of our owners. To that end, we are offering an array of investment products to suit your needs and your abilities. And, aside from the benefit of seeing your money build a brick-and-mortar neighborhood grocery store, we’re offering a highly competitive return on investment. Let’s take a look at the details.
What investment products are we offering? Preferred Stock
Who is eligible to be an investor? Investors must be a resident of North Carolina, and a owner in the co-op. Additional shoppers are not eligible, but can become eligible by upgrading to a full owner share. Will I get my money back if Durham Central Market is unable to move forward? The Board of Directors has committed to spending no more than 5% of your investment until they are confident the co-operative can execute its business plan, including the opening and operation of a retail grocery store. 95% of your investment will be put aside safely until that time.

As owners, it is very important for all of us who can to be involved in the investment campaign. A Preferred Share investment is an opportunity for an owner who lives in North Carolina to invest in Durham Central Market, and provide crucial funds for the development of the co-op and the opening of a neighborhood grocery store. If you are interested in investing and would like further information, or to request a prospectus, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out the web-form below and someone from the Investment Campaign will contact you. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, or make your investment pledge today by sending us an email or filling out the webform. Following your pledge, we will arrange a time to meet in person- either at home, or in our office- and help you with the investment paperwork. We are delighted that so many of us care about making this dream a reality. The support you continue to show is an inspiration, and a testament to co-operation in action! Thank you!
