What is a co-op?


A co-operative is an autonomous association of people who unite voluntarily to meet their economic, social and cultural needs as well as their dreams through a business which is collectively owned and wherein power is exercised democratically. 


The co-op values

  • Self-help
  • Self-responsibility
  • Democracy
  • Equality
  • Equity
  • Solidarity


Our Mission

Jake's Co-op mission as a cooperative is to offer affordable supplies and books while remaining convenient for its members.


Why should I become a member?

  • To save on every single purchase
  • To support a student-run and owned business
  • Because the co-op gives back to its community
  • Because I can get involved in the management of the co-op by sitting on the board of directors

The Membership

For 20$ you can become a member of our co-op. You benefit from a variety of discounts and have access to our promotions. Those discounts apply on books as well as merchandise. Books usually get a 5 to 10% discount, while our retail supplies' discounts can go up to 15%. The membership lasts until cancelled and it is a one time fee! To add on top of this, you also benefit from a 10% off on speciality beverages at the Jake's Café. You can also cancel your membership at any time to receive 10$ back! Just so you can get an idea, people can save around 6$ simply by buying a pair of lab glasses as well as one lab coat.


** If you are ordering your membership online - we will cancel the shipping fee. Once you receive the receipt of your purchase by email, your membership is active and ready to use. All you need to do is create an account. **
