During the economic downturn, businesses that adapted to the changing consumer trend of bulk buying and group discount websites were able to prosper.
Warehouse clubs like Costco, Sam’s Club, and BJ’s experienced significant growth, as did farmers’ markets and natural food stores. Whole Foods reported an annual growth of approximately 25% in bulk food purchases.
Another trend was the popularity of group buying sites, such as Groupon, LivingSocial, and Dealfind, which allowed for discounts on a variety of commodities and services.
However, there was still room for improvement in monthly expenses like car insurance, gas, and healthcare. All Our Power, a group-buying movement seeking to secure membership discounts from service providers and retailers, has emerged to address these needs.
The movement aims to rally 10 million members to access significant negotiating power and savings on essential expenses. All Our Power has already gained momentum as consumers worldwide realize the advantages of free membership.
