What is a Co-op?
Our Co-op is a form of business that is designed to provide economic benefits to member owners as opposed to providing income to investors. From lunch to auto repair we have it all! Each of our stores are conveniently located on U.S. Highway 63 South. Among our many products & services; we have the Do It Best Hardware Store with Appliance Center that offers the “Buy it Now, Take it Now” option with over 300 Appliances in-stock, Energy Center & Propane, Auto & Tire Center, and the Corner Deli located within our Cenex Convenience Store.
Co-ops are owned and controlled by the people who use their services. The Co-op difference: Member owner control, focus on member owner needs, profits shared with member owners. Ask us about our Patron & Rewards Card to receive 1% CASH BACK each Cooperative fiscal year on all of your purchases. Cash Back is refunded to you via a Co-op Rewards voucher which can be redeemed at any of our locations.
