GROUP BUYING
PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Our Group Buying Program offers significant savings on a wide range of high-quality products and services co-ops use every day.

Appliances

Our special CHF BC pricing means members can take advantage of volume savings even when they have a small order.

We offer province-wide service and delivery through our partner, Trail Appliances. Trail provides high-quality, durable products, including a number of Energy Star options.

Co-ops have access to a variety of appliances through our program: fridges; electric and gas ranges; dishwashers, garburators and hood fans.

Banking & Investing

Housing co-ops with money in the Co-op Housing Interest Pool (CHIP) earn higher interest on the balances in their co-op operating accounts.

CHIP turns several small co-op accounts into one large depositor, making each eligible for better interest rates. With more than $140 million on deposit through Vanity, Community Savings Credit Union, and Coast Capital, CHIP is one of our most popular services.
