We are sad to announce that NYBC will be closing our members’ purchasing cooperative by the end of July. The world of internet commerce has changed drastically since we began NYBC in the spring of 2004 in the wake of the closure of DAAIR (Direct AIDS Alternative Information Resources).
The good news is that over the last 11 years, many new online sources of low-cost nutritional supplements have become available. While this has created significant market competition for NYBC’s co-op, it means as good or better prices are available. We will be preparing a list of resources for our members to consider for their ongoing and future needs.
As a result of our decision to close the co-op, we will not be replenishing our current inventory. Please see our website–what is online is what we have left–and it is going fast! So please place all orders by July 31, after which time our online shopping cart will no longer be functional.
There is other good news: NYBC is not going away! While there is a vast amount of information about nutritional supplements on the internet, much of it can be of dubious quality. We plan to continue our mission to continue providing unbiased, evidence-based information on ways people living with chronic diseases such as HIV and hepatitis can continue to survive and thrive using supplements.
We are proud of the work we have been able to accomplish since our founding. And we are especially grateful and honored to have come to know so many of you: our members, patrons, well-wishers, and funders. Your journeys with us have touched us all deeply, and we look forward to continuing our relationships into the future.
With our deepest thanks and appreciation for your membership and support,
The Staff and Board of
The New York Buyers’ Club
