|August 2021 Statements are available|
Our family owned and operated buying group was established over 41 years ago with the primary purpose of allowing independent retailers to take advantage of larger volume-based discounts. By utilizing the collective purchasing power of our members, we are able to offer these discounts without meeting individual order criteria. These discounts generate substantial monthly savings and increase overall profitability for your practice.
As one of the first buying groups in the optical industry we have dedicated ourselves to providing our accounts with accurate, detailed, and prompt monthly statements along with the highest levels of personalized customer service. We are proud to share that many of our original members from 1980 are still active!
We have also formed partnerships with laboratories and other service-based companies to create additional benefits for our members.
·Free membership - Our group is free to join and free to use
·No administration fees - Some groups charge a monthly fee based upon your gross purchases
·No fees for returns or credit balances - Some groups penalize you for returning merchandise or carrying a credit balance on your statement
·One consolidated statement - All of your vendors on one statement means only one bill to pay. Credit balances from one vendor are applied to the total monthly balance. Our statements are detailed and accurate; each company is broken down by invoice and the discount received on each.
·Vendor rebate programs - Some of our vendors offer rebate programs to reward loyal accounts
·Yearly Summary - Members are provided a year-end summary of purchases, subtotaled by month, to help with budgeting and planning
