Purchasing through PAGE Cooperative has allowed many family-owned newspapers to stay private and not sell to a large chain?
PAGE Cooperative was formed to develop a cooperative purchasing system for independent daily and non-daily, general-interest newspapers and privately owned newspaper groups. All members must have at least one or more general-interest newspapers in the U.S.
Joining is easy and normally takes around one week from the time all required paperwork is received to reach the PAGE Cooperative Board of Directors review.
A credit check is performed prior to each new member request being sent to the PAGE Cooperative Board of Directors for approval.
A second type of membership is also available whereby the new member may make their equity deposit with an upfront payment of $3,000, and sign a Promissory Note for the four subsequent annual $3,000 payments along with an assessed interest charge. All other membership requirements remain under this “Plan B Membership.” All newspapers under common ownership qualify under a single equity membership deposit.
Potential members can request a Cost Analysis Study be
performed prior to their joining to determine the approximate amount
of annual savings for specific items that PAGE Cooperative membership
will provide to their newspaper(s).
Download the Cost Analysis Form.
Should a member become ineligible (such as being sold to an ineligible company) or otherwise resign from membership, their equity deposit principal is returned in full following a prescribed waiting period.
