Purchasing Power Plus: Program Offerings
Purchasing Power Plus has been dedicated to the success of our retailers in the healthcare gift shop industry since 1996. Our goal is to empower each healthcare gift shop retailer and support these independent gift shops flourishing among big box locations.
We partner with industry leading Vendors to ensure our Retail Member’s success in an evolving and dynamic marketplace. Equal in our commitment to our Vendor Partners, we lend support via programs that ensure connection and engagement with our Retail Members.
To meet the evolving needs of our community, we offer two distinctive plan options. The first is our classic PPP program offering. These services underscore our intention to serve each Vendor Partner with a scope of offerings that lend themselves to the overall goal of reaching, connecting and creating professional relationships with Healthcare Gift Shops & Independent Retail Members.
Our second offering is our Premier Plus program. The Premier Plus program includes all the benefits of our Classic Program and encourages a deeper level of connectivity with Purchasing Power Plus and our Retail Members. The Premier Plus program allows you the opportunity to appropriate resources on an annual basis, while ensuring a meaningful approach to investing in our marketplace.
