How to Shop

Individuals and families.

Anyone is welcome to shop at the Building Materials Exchange. Low- and moderate-income individuals and families receive a significant discount on our already low prices. Just bring in proof of your income (a copy of your most recent tax return is best) and start shopping. There is a $10 yearly membership fee. To find out if you qualify, click on BME Income Guidlines. If you do not qualify for our low/ moderate income pricing, you are welcome to become a Supporting Member. Supporting members have all the same benefits as client members but pay a nominal surcharge for available items. In this way the BME is able to provide extra discounts to those households which need extra savings or materials on a grant basis.

Nonprofit groups may also shop at the BME. To qualify, just bring in a copy of your organization’s IRS Determination Letter. Tax-exempt organizations must also provide us with a copy of their Mission and a copy of their most recent literature. As with individuals and families, there is a $10 yearly membership fee.
