General Question regarding a Coop    (Posted Thu, Feb 7 '13 at 08:57 UTC)

If you have a minute can I ask you the following? This is for a school project if anyone can help

Do you have any hints, warnings or impressions on how to start a Coop from your experience?
How much does it roughly cost to start an Coop? ( A range is fine)
How many hours are you expected to work a week for an Coop?
What are the specific benefits?

Do you mean a food co-op? A store that has hundreds of member owners?

It can take years to set one up, takes a strong governing board and the support of at least 500 people and about $500K to open such a place
