How did it get started?

The Niskayuna Co-op was founded in 1943 during WW II because of gas rationing. The cooperative form of organization was chosen and has grown to a current membership of over 12,000 members. In the interest of true democratic control, voting in the corporation is on the basis of one member, one vote rather than on the number of shares owned.
