Meeting the Basics and Going Beyond!
Throughout GreenTree you may have notice that we have purple Co-op Basics signs on numerous products in every department. These signs point out our everyday low prices on staples like cooking oils, juices, cereals, coffee, deodorant, ground beef, formula, and more! The Deals are available to everyone, whether or not they have chosen to become a Co-op Owner. Nearly all items in the program are certified organic, fair trade, or non-GMO. Check out this flyer to see a few of our favorites!
We are a part of the National Co-op Grocers (NCG) organization, along with 148 other food co-ops in the nation. NCG is on a mission to deliver quality products at low prices from brands you may recognize; like Greek Gods, Alaffia, Field Day, Seventh Generation, Tom’s of Maine, and more. We pass those discounts on to you to create a low price, high quality shopping trip each and every time you visit GreenTree.
Starting April 1st, the program expanded to include Greek Gods 24oz yogurts at $3.99 each and Santa Cruz 32oz lemonades at $2.49. Tom’s of Maine select toothpastes and deodorants were added in March as well. As negotiations between brands and NCG continue, you will see more brands and products added to the Basics program throughout the year!
