Valued Members and Business Partners,
Per the CDC recommendations, in order to protect our employees and the surrounding communities, effective immediately, we have put in place the following restriction:
There will be no Visitors permitted inside Premier Cooperative locations until further notice. If you need to sell grain or receive a check please call your location. We are mailing all checks or paying by ACH if you are set up. ACH will automatically deposit to your bank account the day following the payment date.
We are encouraging our members to sign up for ACH as this allows the cooperative to more efficiently transact your payment and ensures the timely deposit to your bank account. If you prefer to continue being paid by check that is fine.
If you have any questions, please contact Premier Cooperative Corporate Office at 217-355-1983.
