Use It; Don’t Lose It
Your 2008-09 member rebate vouchers should be used at the co-op no later than FEBRUARY 28, 2010. Spending your voucher HELPS the store, since unredeemed vouchers are lost income and not a cost savings for the cooperative—it’s your deferred discount on the purchases you made at your cooperative between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. Enjoy!

Packaged in an attractive gift folder and embellished with colorful photos of delicious food, co-op gift cards are beautiful AND practical. They can also be used at Linden Hills Natural Home. Just ask any cashier, stop by the customer service desk, or call 612-922-1159 to find out more. Co-op gift cards make great shower gifts, wedding presents, and housewarming gifts, too!
Each fall, Linden Hills Co-op members vote for two Green Patch groups—area nonprofits with a “green” mission. When shoppers use cloth or canvas tote bags they earn a “Green Patch,” worth five cents, which they can drop in a donation box or save up until they can get a dollar back for 20 patches.
