For the fourth consecutive year, co-op owners of the Briar Patch Community Market are receiving a surprise in the mail. Briar Patch General manager, Chris Maher says the co-op is distributing over 150,000 dollars.
Maher says the 4782 owner-households will be receiving dividends based upon how much they spent in the store during fiscal year 2012.
The vouchers range from $2.00 dollars to $375.00 dollars.
Members pay an annual fee of $40.00 in order to be eligible for the dividends.
Prior to distributing dividends to owners, profits were used to fun the LEED certified building on Sierra College Dr in Grass Valley.
The Briar Partch Co-op is Nevada County’s leading natural food grocer since 1976 and is open to the public.
