It's the holiday season, that time when everyone is looking for the perfect gift for their friends and loved ones. This season, consider the gift of a Chicago Market ownership.
Since we started our campaign in June, 621 households have joined CM as Owners. If you are looking for a gift idea for the "not-yet-an-Owner" in your life, we have the right present for you to give. Giving the gift of co-op ownership is a great way to show someone you really care about them and local food -- and to take us another step closer to making our “dream grocery store” a reality!
Ownership of Chicago Market is a statement in support of cooperation as a consumer-friendly, planet-friendly and farmer-friendly way of doing business. Owners of Chicago Market all have equal voting power to elect the Board of Directors and the opportunity to be part of the leadership. A gift of Chicago Market Ownership is perfect for your friends and family members who care about supporting local farmers, fostering a healthy community, and building our local economy.
When you buy a CM Ownership gift, we will provide an Ownership Gift Kit that we can mail directly to the recipient or send to you so you can deliver it personally.
The Gift Kit will include the following:
Chicago Market canvas tote bag, pen and buttons
A personalized Gift Certificate to let the recipient know the gift is from you, and instructions on how to activate their ownership
- A brochure explaining what CM is all about
Please contact Meg at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up the gift Ownership.
Happy Holidays from Chicago Market
