About Co-ops

Cooperative buying clubs or preorder co-ops are typically informal groups organized to buy directly from a wholesaler and save substantially on groceries. Group members order in bulk and divide their order among themselves. Each person also volunteers time towards the task of ordering, bookkeeping and distribution. Cooperative buying clubs may be organized to obtain common grocery items or special types of products such as produce, natural foods or canned goods.
