Bulk buying is one of the best ways to shop these days, and the Co-op has just what you need!
Mass and volume are common synonyms of bulk and imply a large or heavy quantity. That may be true, in that our bulk selections are quite extensive, and there is a large amount of product in our bins and jars, but it does not mean you are expected to purchase a 25-pound bag of flour. Quite the opposite is true. You can buy a cup of flour using a scoop and a reusable container and take home only what you need at a bulk price point. Don’t worry! Those 25-pound bags are available when you need them.
Thank you for being ecologically conscious when you use paper bags or reusable jars and containers when you shop. When you purchase in bulk, you do away with all the packaging waste used otherwise. We encourage you to bring reusable containers; however, we have paper bags available and offer pre-tared jars and recycled plastic containers for purchase.
Another benefit to buying in bulk is preordering items and receiving a “case” discount. If you are looking for something not on our sales floor, be sure to ask, we welcome special orders.
Many of our bulk products are local, organic, fairtrade, and/or non-GMO.
The Bulk department has a refillable water station. You can purchase your water jugs here or refill your own.
Other Bulk items are available throughout the store. We also have an amazing selection of Equal Exchange and FairTrade whole-bean Coffee available in gravity bins or ordered in 5-pound bags. You can take the beans home whole or use our convenient multi-choice grinding stations in the store.
