About Us

We are your local community connection for high quality foods, friendly service and great prices.

Our Customer-owned store is a Cooperative that offers a convenient one-stop shop where you can find everything you need from the everyday essentials to specialty items at great prices. The Iron River Foods and Iron River Hardware Hank are both stores that are owned by the Iron River Cooperatives, Inc., a local Cooperative that has been serving the Iron River Community since 1914. The Cooperative is owned by its members who patronize the stores. Cooperative membership is not required to shop at either store but encouraged. As a Cooperative member you become eligible to share in the profits of the Cooperative in the form of yearly refunds in cash as well as equities for later redemption. As a voting member you have a vote on who is elected to the Board of Directors and a say on how the Cooperative is run. There is no charge for membership and becoming a member is as easy as filling out an application the next time you stop in.

Our friendly staff is here to help you find exactly what you're looking for and to offer you assistance regarding all the products we carry.
