Welcome to the Ellwood Thompson’s Community Membership Program portal! It’s here where we explain exactly what the Community Membership Program entails, how you can get started saving 10% in your favorite Ellwood’s department or allow us to donate your 10% savings to a local charity and start receiving a number of other fantastic perks and programs.

What is the program?

What about the fine print?

The fine print is easy to understand and there aren’t hoops to jump through. But even still we really want you to please read through it very carefully so you know exactly what the Community Membership Program entails. It can be found on your application page under “membership rules & guidelines”. Take a few minutes and make sure you understand everything. If you have any questions, email bcrump@ellwoodthompsons.com and put “Community Membership Question” in the subject line.

How much does the Community Membership Program cost?

The annual fee for the program is $75 and the total in full is paid at the time of enrollment but it’s much more of an investment than a cost. Let’s take a look at numbers to understand the substantial savings in greater detail. If you were to spend $150 in the department of your choosing each month, that’s a total of $1800 in 1 year. With the 10% discount, you are saving $180! Not to mention the access to community room class discounts, free events, and much more! So really, let’s call it an investment, not a cost. An investment that provides you with monetary value and access to really fun perks and benefits.
