Why “Buy in Bulk”?
Buying in bulk benefits us all by reducing the amount of waste we produce, especially when we use our own containers. When we buy in bulk we can also save money, because we’re buying the product without its expensive packaging. Receive a 5¢ credit for each re-used container! Shoppers can also donate their 5¢ credit in our Beans for Bags program.
Tips for shopping in bulk:
- Weigh your container before filling it. The “tare” weight of the container is subtracted from the total weight at the check stand.
- Write down the PLU number when you fill a bag or container. PLUs in bulk are 2 to 4 digit numbers and should be clearly marked on the bin. Pens, tape & flag tags are available for writing down the PLU.
- Forgot your container? That’s okay. Plastic bags and containers for holding bulk items are available at no cost. You can also buy glass and plastic containers in the store for future reuse.
Special ordering bulk products
Should you need more than is available in the bulk bins, consider special ordering through our Buying Club or directly from a vendor. Anything sold on the shelf can be special ordered. Check with the Member Services Desk for more about special ordering. You can download and print the Buying Club catalogs here.
5 cent refund for each container that you re-use!
