About us

Our story

Our roots are cooperative

In a world where independent businesses face widespread consolidation, we are stronger together than we are apart. We believe this to be a fact.

Local, independent retailers contribute to our communities in a way the big-boxes never will. Our team brings together the experience and solutions that give local businesses real advantages, and full-service support.

Our motivation

Why we do it

We believe that local businesses offer their customers a higher level of service and expertise than most national competitors, but that’s just the beginning. Local businesses have an economic and cultural impact that larger competitors can’t touch. When they stay local, their communities win.
