Co-op Buying Club Information & Policies

Weekly Orders ~ Free Membership ~ Great Savings

Welcome to the Whole Life Co-op! We provide a service that helps you save both time and money, two things that everyone can use. What is special about our co-op is you do almost nothing! You fill out the order form, fax, and drop it off, mail, or phone. We then place the order and get it ready for you. An order is placed every week and available Saturday for pick up.

How do I become a Co-op Buying Club Member?

1. Complete our Co-op Membership Agreement. Deliver it to the market or fax it to 255-8866.

2. You will receive a Co-op Member Number after approval of the agreement.

Is there a membership fee?

There is no yearly charge for being a member. For UNFI Buying Club, the only cost to you is purchasing the bi-annual catalogue which is $2.50, then monthly sale flyers at $1.50. For Associated Buyers, you will need to search on to view a catalog.

How do I place an order?

Filling out the order form is simple, deciding what you need is the hard part! You can fill out our printable Co-op Order Form and deliver it to the store, or you can Order Online.

There is a $25.00 minimum per order. You must order three of each on any item that is sold in singles. You will need a current UNFI catalogs when completing your orders. You may purchase your sale catalogue from our store for $1.50. We need the following information on the order form: Product number, Quantity, Item Description, Price, and Page Number.

Down to the Nitty Gritty

All UNFI Co op orders must be received by the close of the business on Wednesday and will be available for pick-up after 11 am on Saturday or the following Monday. For Associated Buyers, we need your order by the close of day on Monday (of the order week) and it is available for pick up the Saturday of the same week. There is a 5% surcharge for UNFI orders, and a 10% surcharge for Associated Buyers orders. The surcharge will be added to all orders at the time of pickup. We do not back order out of stock items. Our wholesaler does not give any rainchecks to out of stock items. All orders must be picked up by the end of our business day on Monday. If you have any questions, please call or stop in. We are here to help in any way.
