Indianapolis, IN – May 25, 2017—Independent Stationers, an industry-leading nationwide member-owned business products cooperative, announces a new program called IS+ that provides members with additional rebates when they increase their Direct Buy supplier purchases.

The IS+ program is in line with Independent Stationers’ strategic goal of creating multiple membership opportunities that address the varying requirements of all dealer sizes, operating models, and needs.  The IS+ program offers additional rebates paid to IS members that support key vendors by growing their direct buy volume of branded and contract products.  Vendors participating in IS+ benefit by experiencing increased volume and strengthening their brands’ position in the marketplace. IS+ is available to every IS shareholder that meets the program criteria.

Joel Vockrodt, Chairman of the Board of Independent Stationers said, “Independent Stationers developed IS+ to add more value to membership by putting more money in dealers’ pockets through increased rebate potential. The program also supports our key supplier partnerships while bolstering their branded market share.  It’s a win-win for the dealer and vendor communities.”
