Invest in the Co-op!

Our transition to a worker-owned cooperative provides a unique opportunity for local supporters of Downtown Sounds to invest in the business. To help fund our (the co-op’s) purchase of the business from the original owner, we are selling non-voting equity shares in Downtown Sounds Workers Co-op.
