Cooperation

 

If you really want to know what the IWDC is all about, we state it clearly beneath our logo: “Independent. Cooperative.”

Independently owned businesses that cooperate the way our Member businesses do achieve greater results.

IWDC Members have one common bond particularly worth pointing out: they all own the IWDC.

As owners, they cooperate through our National Accounts program, supplying each other with products, combining purchases, sharing transportation costs, and engaging in joint ventures. This allows them to compete with the big box stores and offer the outstanding local service and expertise for which our Members are known.

This same kind of cooperation extends to our Vendor partners as well. We work with them to grow their businesses through our Members and their end-user customers.
 
To learn more about what true cooperation can accomplish for your business, please contact the IWDC.
