GFS decided that they would allow us a club to get a membership for discounts at GFS.
There is no membership fee so we might as well join so that if someone is not around with a wholesale club card we have a cheaper option for shopping than the super market.
They also allow online order so that we can just walk in and pick up the goods.
As long as you know the our membership number you are free to use it for personal use whenever you want. (Will be posted upon receiving)
