Seattle’s Largest Grocery Co-op

WE AREN’T JUST COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY

— WE’RE OWNED BY IT.

PCC began as a community of people committed to each other and to good food. Our priorities haven’t changed.

We have always been and still are member-owned and operated — for a $60 lifetime investment, each member owns an equal share of our co-op. Members elect the Board of Trustees each year to represent their interests and participate in advocacy around our local and national food systems.

Unlike other grocery stores, we send our profits directly back to our members, our stores and to the communities we serve. We don’t use private equity, venture capital or the stock market to fund our business, which allows us to remain committed to a triple bottom line: the economic, social and environmental responsibilities that shape our co-op from the ground up.
