Round Up at the Register

Loose Change Really Adds Up

Our Co-op’s Register Round Up is another way we are supporting our local community. This simple giving opportunity empowers our customers to round-up their grocery bill to the nearest dollar and donate the difference to our chosen recipient or non-profit.
