Our Mission Statement:
Integrating the talents of Members and Vendors to provide excellence in products and services to customers as the most innovative and preferred channel to the marketplace.
The goal of the IWDC is to create an environment that allows our membership to, at minimum, compete on an equal playing field with the national chains or majors, and sometimes in fact gain a competitive edge.
How We Accomplish the Goal:
The IWDC utilizes the collective buying power of its membership in ongoing negotiations with vendors to secure National Account Agreements for best buys and better profits.
By providing warehouse commodity items purchased at wholesale levels. Designed to assist members in better control of inventories, improve cash flow and development of profit pools for annualized patronage dividends.
By providing "value added service" in annual events such as the "Buying Market", convention workshops, roundtables and other educational opportunities.
By keeping cost of operations low and providing service and expense control items attainable only by large group participation. Examples are: National yellow page advertising, insurance programs, office supplies, telephone & communication agreements and color consumer catalogs.
