Special Orders & Volume Purchasing

For more information about each of our Volume Purchasing options, please see below!

"Yellow Sheet" Special Orders  

 Available to Co-op Member-Owners as well as the general public. 

The S/O Program allows you to order full cases or bulk bags of anything available to us in the United Natural Foods Catalog.   Owners are eligible to receive 15% off any regularly priced cases and Non-Owners are eligible to receive 10% off any regularly priced cases.  Case quantities are 6 if only available by the each (ie Wellness Items).

 You can place your Special Order over the phone or in-store.  
Please have your membership card available if you're an Owner placing an order.  
In-store, simply ask a Co-op Employee for a Special Order form.  

Your order will usually arrive within the week, unless we are unable to receive it due to an out-of-stock or other extenuating circumstance.

If you request pricing prior to ordering, your order will be delayed until we have received confirmation that you would like to receive it at the quoted price.

 Buyer's Club
The Buyer's Club program is offered to groups or individuals who wish to purchase foodstuffs and home supplies in case and bulk pack quantities with a minimum order and lower mark-up than our general Co-op retail pricing. 
You must be an Owner of the Co-op to participate in a Buyer's Club.

Business to Business

Our Business to Business program (B2B) offers ingredients and supplies in bulk quantities to local businesses for manufacturing and/or resale. 

For us to maintain the pricing structure for this high volume, minimal customer service program, you must have email access to participate.  We are excited to be a partner in helping grow your business success!

You must be a fully invested ($150 full-share) Co-op Owner with appropriate proof of business and resale certificates to participate in this program.  Health Permit also required.

Both Buyer's Club and B2B programs are designed to establish long term, mutually beneficial relationships between our food cooperative and households, organizations, and businesses that comprise and build our community.  

Both options offer significant savings compared with shelf prices.
