Becoming a member is simply, and you start saving immediately! Please download the membership application, review, fill out and send back. Once you have been approved, you will be give access to the “Members Only” area, where you will find the names of the companies we are working with along with their contact info. Once a member, your contact info will be sent out to all our suppliers. Being a member does mean that you have to purchase products that we have negotiated for, that decision is up to you. But we hope that the quality and pricing of the products we do have will be a non issue for you to switch.
In many cases, Colonial Purchasing Co-Op will have a rebate program in place. This is a fairly simple but effective component of the buying group.
- By having a rebate program in place, helps assure that members purchase the projected products they committed to.
- The rebate program helps the supplier establish a reasonable market invoice price without destroying market pricing, knowing that if the group meets their commitment levels, then a rebate would be distributed.
- When the members receive their rebates, they suddenly realize that these funds go directly to the bottom line!
- Additional Rebates can be structured when the group exceeds projections. This is most often achieved by bringing new members on during the time-frame of the rebate.
