Getting started doesn’t require a long ramp-up period or multiple rounds of negotiations. We have spent nearly a decade fine-tuning each offering to ensure that it adds value to grocery stores of all sizes — giving you the buying power, tools and technology that you need to continue expanding your reach and enhancing your revenue opportunities.
Merchant Services Discounts
There are certain business expenses that you just expect. You may not love paying a big percentage of each order for payment processing and other services, but you know it’s inevitable.
With Grocer Exchange Membership, you can save up to 10-15% on primary merchant services that you use every single day in your business.
Your larger competitors are already taking advantage of volume discounts, which lets them reduce the overall cost of all their products — helping them edge you out on pricing or selection for your store.
When you have the buying power of hundreds or thousands of small to mid-size grocery stores and chains behind you, merchants suddenly become much more interested in your shared buying power — offering lucrative discounts and incentives that you can either reinvest in your business, or use to take a long overdue vacation.
Discount Energy Pricing
At least once a month, you’re reminded of one of the largest ongoing bills in your groceries other than salaries and rent — energy.
Simply keeping the lights on and the space heated or cooled can sap your budget dry, and this is particularly relevant as energy prices continue to rise across the country. Apart from putting solar panels on your roof, you may not realize there’s a lot that you can do to cut your energy costs.
With Grocer Exchange, you’ll take advantage of the aggressive energy discounts with programs that are developed directly for businesses just like yours. This insider pricing helps you reduce your overall energy costs by adding you to our energy-buying collective.
The Grocer Exchange energy savings aggregation program uniquely allows members to lock in today’s prices even if you do not activate today or even this year. Switch-over to our program would happen automatically so you would not be subject to any early cancellation fees from your current supplier. The locked-in preferred price is good for up to 5 years.
Energy Aggregation Passport Program
Energy Aggregation is a program that allows businesses to create a large buying group of electricity accounts to seek bids for cheaper energy rates. By aggregating, or grouping, a large number of commercial accounts together, economies of scale are created. These economies of scale set conditions for participating businesses to achieve greater savings during a competitive bid situation, than could never have been obtained by the individual customer.
The key benefit to Energy Aggregation is the ability for commercial account holders to save money on their energy bills. Based on current market conditions, individual accounts can potentially save 5% to 20% off of their entire bills depending on the rate they sign. The state of Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, California, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Illinois, allow cities and counties to aggregate the buying power of customers within a defined jurisdiction to secure alternative energy supply contracts on a community-wide basis.
