    ** Savings. Owners are eligible for Owner-only sales and promotions.
    ** Discounts. Owners receive discounts on classes, workshops and other special events.

    HOW MUCH IS A SHARE?
    A one-time investment of $250 provides you and your entire household lifetime ownership equity in Chicago Market. Payment plans are available.
