Master Nursery establishes relationships with vendors on behalf of their members. In exchange for bringing vendors a ready-made marketplace for their products and services, they ask vendors to give their members favorable pricing and terms. Vendors are encouraged to develop their own Master Nursery program, which may include discounts, extended dating, rebates or exclusive products.

Being an approved vendor to Master Nursery Garden Centers gives vendors the inside track to selling products to over 750 leading garden centers across the country. It streamlines vendors’ marketing efforts by providing a focused group of potential purchasers who rely heavily on the vendor approval and relationship-building efforts of the cooperative to bring them the best products and services and the best deals. Approved vendors will be allowed to exhibit at the annual Conclave and will be given other marketing opportunities only available to approved vendors.

Sales by approved vendors to members of the cooperative are billed through the central billing system of the cooperative, which saves vendors time and effort. Individual vendors are relieved of the responsibility of doing credit checks on each store, and vendor’s billing office only has to deal with one office, instead of hundreds.
