How Transparent is your buying group?
Unlike other buying groups which are Corporations, the Canpro Decorating Products Cooperative is a 100% member owned Cooperative registered by the Government of Canada under the Canada Cooperatives Act.
Already a member of another buying group?
Ever wonder how a buying group can operate without having any fees or costs to it’s members? Free buying groups recover the costs of the operation and obtains their profit by having “back end deals” from the vendors, hidden central purchasing discounts, and or by retaining part of the annual volume rebates that the members earn from the vendors. Every discount that Canpro gets from our vendors is passed along to our members, and 100% of the volume rebates we collectively earn is passed back to the members that made the purchases.
Of course there is a cost of operating a buying group, and this has to come from somewhere. The shareholder members of Canpro pay a fee to belong, and a very small upcharge on purchases (3/10’s of 1 percent.. thats .003 billed on a monthly basis).
Canpro is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. By law every shareholder of Canpro gets a copy of our annual financial statements, after all they are the owners of the buying group, not merely customers or members. You cannot get much more transparent.
We have the largest number of quality vendors, that meet all of your needs from paint, coatings, wallcovering, tools, spray equipment, home decor, flooring, blinds in short almost everything in your stores, all with strong programs that will save your company money.
With Canpro's $115 Million Dollar volume, combined with ALLPRO's Billion Dollar per year volume , that gives our members very powerful buying power and volume rebates.
