Testimonials

It makes no sense not to want to save money!

George Karas, The Village Squire

The more you buy the larger the rebate. We save on all the major brands.

Thomas Mannos, Exchequer Pub

GARA offers the best of both worlds; we save money and GARA gives back to local charities.

Steve Theofanous, Around the Clock Restaurant

We receive no compensation from manufacturers or distributors – we work for you, we only make money if we save you money! Membership savings for one location is typically 4-10 times more than the annual fee. We are constantly searching for ways to add value added features to our members beyond the rebate and low price on food and supplies.
