Good Tern Natural Foods

Good Tern Natural Foods was opened on May 24th, 1980 with 150 members and a single staff person. The history of Good Tern Natural Foods is convoluted – but can be read in detail at their website.

Good Tern is a cooperative store, and members of the cooperative receive a discount on every shopping visit to the store. They also share in governance, receive newsletters, and can use the lending library and participate in the daily work of the store.

There are three types of membership:

Working member
Supporting Member
Super Supporting Member

All memberships require a refundable annual equity payment; the type of membership determines your discount on stocked items and special orders.
