What Does Your Co-op Do?
BOOSTS LOCAL ECONOMY
TPSS Co-op is committed to selling the products of local growers and producers as much as possible. The Co-op now buys from over 200 local businesses. In 2018, we expanded our access to dozens more regional products by entering into a relationship with Common Market, a regional food hub that aggregates and distributes products from local growers and producers in the mid-Atlantic region.
INCREASES ACCESS TO HEALTHY FOOD
The TPSS Co-op promotes healthful living by offering wholesome foods and high-quality wellness products. Our staff is knowledgeable and friendly, offering useful information about our products. We offer monthly discounts and senior discounts, as well as payment of our $100 lifetime membership fee on installment.
FOSTERS ACTIVE COMMUNITIES
As a member-owned business, TPSS Co-op fosters active community by democratically electing member-owners to the board of representatives; inviting comments at board meetings, twice-yearly member meetings, and special events; and keeping our membership informed through our website, social media, and e-mails. We also support the greater community of Takoma Park/Silver Spring through outreach programs, community events, and charitable donations.
