The Merc Co+op (KCK)

Since 1974, The Merc Co+op has provided our northeast Kansas community a place to shop, gather, eat and learn by offering real food and sustainable products at reasonable prices through cooperative ownership and responsible commerce. To ensure that we are meeting the needs and reflecting the values of our diverse shoppers - while inviting even more people to experience our co-op - we select a hybrid product mix of affordable, conventional, organic and local items that support our mission.

With nearly 9,000 owners, over 100 employees, and around $13 million in annual sales, The Merc Co+op currently operates two locations in Lawrence and Kansas City, Kansas. Learn more at
