Here is everything you need to know about how to use co+op deals to your advantage every single month.
Yes, it takes planning on your part. Yes, it may require you to put a few more notifications into your calendar. However, I can assure you that it will be worth it, and you will have the hang of it in no time. Also, you will be so happy when you realize how much money you can save, you won’t even mind the tiny shift in the way you shop. So, don’t worry, I am here to walk you through it and send you reminders along the way.
First of all, what is the co+op deals flyer? Co+op deals is the blanket term used for all of the sales programs that NCG generates. So if there is a coupon sheet, a book of coupons on the shelf, or a coupon book, these are all co+op deals. A co+op deal is an item that is on sale for a period of time through NCG. The co+op deals flyer comes out on a bi-monthly basis. The reason that I can’t say that it comes out exactly every two weeks is because there are months that have three week sales cycles, it just depends on what they’ve decided works best based on holidays and other factors like how many weeks are in the month. This sales flyer contains several sale items that are on deep discount for that two week period. (again, the timeframe is approximate, and shoppers will not have to keep track, I’ll tell you exactly how to know when the sales begin and end.)
The types sales will make sense based on holidays, months, times of the year, and what you are going to be buying. Example: ketchup & mustard in May when you are going to be able to get through a whole new bottle in a season, or stuffing in November.
Spiral Food Co-op will be putting these sales flyers into the Hastings Journal, we will have copies in the store, and a digital version will be available online so that you can always have access to the latest deals flyers.

Q: How will I know what’s on sale when I am shopping?
A: Look for the green co+op deals signs!
Q: Can I order cases of sale items?
Q: How early/late can I place my case orders?
A: We encourage you to place your requests for cases as soon as possible in the sales cycle. So as soon as you can see the ad, you can place your request. This also allows you to order a second case within the sales cycle if you really like an item.
