Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a new owner. What is an Owner Appreciation Discount?

Every October, we host our ten-day Owner Appreciation Days sale during which all Menomonie Market Food Co-op owners can get 10% off a single transaction. During this sale, many of our owners like to use this discount to stock up on their favorite items, buy gifts for the holidays, or even try new products they’ve been eyeing.

Because of the pandemic, we felt it was unsafe to host this sale the same way we usually would and are instead letting owners choose one week during a two-month period that their 10% off discount is activated. That way we can still say “thank you” to our owners by offering this awesome discount while keeping our shoppers and staff safe.

Why are you changing the way the Owner Appreciation Discount is offered this year?

We are offering our Owner Appreciation Discount differently this year for three reasons:

1. To ensure our shoppers and staff stay safe
In a normal year, our Owner Appreciation Days sale spans over ten days and is our biggest sales week of the year. Over those ten days, our store is usually packed with owners doing big grocery shops to maximize their savings. Because of the pandemic, our store’s capacity is limited to allow for social distancing, so instead of only offering this discount for ten days and risking the need for our shoppers to wait in long lines to come into our store or to check out after shopping, we are extending the redemption period to two months so our owners can shop more safely.

2. To ensure our store stays staffed
To keep our staff safe during the pandemic, we have implemented social distancing measures that make scheduling more difficult. By extending the redemption period for this discount, we can more effectively keep our store staffed all day every day while taking into account potential absences.

3. To ensure our shelves stay stocked
By extending the redemption period, our buyers will be able to more accurately place orders for products, especially ones that are in shorter supply due to the pandemic, to reduce the number of out-of-stocks during the sale.

Why is the discount only valid for one week?

The discount is only valid for one week so we can more evenly distribute the discount to our owners and ensure that our store’s capacity stays at or below the mandated limit.

How do I activate my Owner Appreciation Discount?

To request activation of your discount, fill out the online form above, or speak to a cashier next time you visit our store to fill out a paper copy.

How do I use my discount?

After you submit your activation request either online or in-store, we will make sure it’s activated the week you requested. To use the discount, tell the cashier your owner number and let them know that you want to use your 10% off discount on that transaction.

Can I use my Owner Appreciation Discount online?

No, our Owner Appreciation Discount is available in-store only. This is because our current staffing limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic do not allow us to quickly fulfill the huge orders that are usually placed by our owners during our annual Owner Appreciation Days sale.

I only use curbside pickup, but I want to use my discount. How can I do so?

Our Owner Appreciation Discount is only available on purchases made in-store, but there are still a few ways you can use your discount:

If you are an at-risk shopper who cannot come into the store at all, we recommend submitting an activation request online for the week you’d like your discount activated, creating a shopping list, and sending a friend or family member to shop for you. Just make sure to tell the person shopping for you that they’ll need to remind the cashier of your owner number and that you wanted to use your Owner Appreciation Discount on that purchase at checkout.

If you are an at-risk shopper who can still come into the store, we recommend submitting an activation request online or in-store for the week you’d like your discount activated and using our online shopping list builder—available to all owners after logging into our online store at shop.mmfc.coop—to create your list ahead of time so you can get in and out as quickly as possible. We also recommend planning to shop right away in the morning when our store opens at 8:00am because that is when it’s at its quietest and cleanest.

If neither of these accommodations will work for you, please call or email our General Manager Crystal Halvorson at (715) 231-3663, ext. 213, or crystal@mmfc.coop, and she may be able to help.

What if I need to change the week my discount is activated?

If you already submitted an activation request either online or in-store and need to change the week you selected, you can do so by emailing us at info@mmfc.coop or calling our store at 715-231-3663. We’ll take it from there.

What happens if I forget to use my discount?

If you don’t use your discount the week it is activated during the sale and still want to use it, you can submit another activation request for a different week by filling out the form above or by speaking to a cashier the next time you visit our store. If you miss the week your discount is activated after the sale ends in December, you forfeit the discount.

Does the discount stack on other sales and deals?

Yes, this discount stacks on top of all other sales and deals except the discount offered to owners for special orders.

Does this discount stack on the 10% off owners receive on special orders?

No, the Owner Appreciation Discount does not stack on top of the discount owners receive year-round for special orders. If you’re an owner and you plan to place a special order the week your Owner Appreciation Discount is activated, you will still receive 10% off any special orders, not 20% off.

By when do I need to request activation of my discount?

The final date to request activation of your Owner Appreciation Discount is December 23, 2020. After that, activation and use of your discount will no longer be available.

If I become an owner before the end of December, will I be eligible to receive this discount?

Yes, as long as you fill out an ownership application, submit the one-time investment for your ownership share, and request activation of your Owner Appreciation Discount before December 23, 2020, you are eligible to receive 10% off a single purchase.

If I gift an ownership share to someone else, are they eligible to receive the discount?

Yes, as long as you submit the one-time investment for their ownership share and they finish the application process and request activation of their Owner Appreciation Discount before December 23, 2020, they will be eligible to receive 10% off a single purchase. Just be sure to remind them to visit this page on our website or fill out the activation request form in-store to activate their discount when gifting them their ownership share.
