ICBA purses bid opportunities with vendors to provide exceptional pricing on high-volume, everyday commodity products. To achieve exceptional bid pricing, ICBA relies on the aggregated projected sales of participating stores to negotiate best pricing, often up to 30% below what is typically available in the marketplace.
The SOURCE program is our commitment-based model for purchase t-shirts, fleece, polo shirts, performance wear, and headwear. Since its inception in 2014, more than 2.7 million garments have been purchased. In 2018, The SOURCE program is expanded to include commodity supply products. A selection team made of store Members evaluates vendor bids. The SOURCE Request for Quote process begins in early November, with bids due in early December. Awarded bids are announced in January.
