Respond to Review of La Montanita Co-op Marketplace
by rianne1134

Review: it is a co-op and there isn't an owner, there's over 12,000. you can buy membership and become an owner. there is paid staff that includes administration and a general manager on salary but it is still non profit and any profit made is returned to the community in projects, used for upgrading stores, and divided back to members in a patronage check. as far a produce goes, and in all departments, there is a standard mark up based on what the co-op pays itself for the merchandise, things aren't more expensive in santa fe because it's santa fe, it costs more to deliver there than albuquerque. there's a ton more about this place that if anyone is interested in can find out by contacting the co-op, you can speak with any on the administrative side or the volunteer board of directors and any and all financial information is available as it's a transparent company.....
