How to Start a Buying Club
Have you or your organization ever considered starting a buying club with Frontier Co-op? If you value saving money and purchasing natural and organic products, starting a buying club is a convenient, low cost investment and offers the best savings. Buying club members get access to 10,000 products at low wholesale costs, plus are part of a like-minded community who care about people and planet. Frontier Co-op, based in Norway, Iowa, has been a member-owned cooperative supporting natural living since 1976 — owned by stores and other organizations that buy and sell our products.
WHAT IS A BUYING CLUB?
A buying club is a group of people comprised of individuals, families or organizations ordering collectively to receive wholesale prices. Members share opinions and learn about products from each other, while reducing packaging and carbon emissions through consolidated packing and shipping.
