At Circle The Wagons Group Purchasing Organization, we source the best vendors across a number of industries to provide the best experience for independent grocery retailers and retail operations. CTW vendors will save you time and money. While most retailers usually have buyers to source produce, meat, deli items, or other primary commodities, companies usually don’t have a dedicated person to find the best uniform vendor, new and used grocery equipment, or store enhancements like cash kiosks and LED lighting. When you become a CTW member, we become that buyer. 

CTW reduces “not for resale” expenses for independent grocers by finding the best vendors and negotiating with those vendors on behalf of all of our retail members. You retain the relationship with the vendor with regards to all operational issues and we continue to help you with quality and service issues. Becoming a CTW member saves you time and money, so you can focus on your core business.

The best part: there is no cost to you to be part of Circle The Wagons GPO.

You get access to our vendors without any annual or joining fees. Once you become a member, all vendors are available to you at no cost.
