By providing round-the-clock access to products, services, and things to do, this is a way to find and support all the many wonderful resources we have in our own county.

A: No. Cochise Market was created by locals to help locals, so we don’t believe in locking anyone into long-term contracts. Discounts are available for those who want to commit to a year of a plan, but month-to-month options are available to anyone who doesn’t want to commit.
A: It is very costly to host a website and program all the software integrations needed to facilitate online shopping through eCommerce platforms. Our team set out to make this affordable for everyone, so the small fees for the premium plans are less than would be possible if you set up a website or eCommerce page yourself, and go towards covering the cost of hosting the site, paying software developers to program it, and maintaining the technology needed to allow online purchases to happen safely and securely.
