Group service - Where (in Canada) to buy plastic chips

From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

Group service - Where (in Canada) to buy plastic chips

Postby dusterb » Wed Feb 04, 2015 1:51 pm

I'm looking for advice...

I am the literature rep for my home group in Ottawa. I am trying to locate somewhere (in Ottawa, or Ontario, or Canada) where I can purchase plastic "AA Chips" - white, maroon, red, green, blue, yellow with the "AA" gold-stamped on them.

I have spent a ton of time on Google and the only online stores seem to be in the USA - when, after factoring in the exchange and shipping it's starting to get costly for our group.

Does anyone have names they could pass along?

Thanks.

Doug T.

I hope someone comes along soon to help out - I have never had to purchase them in bulk. I usually buy just one here and there from a club in our area... the phone number to that club is
Fellowship Club
Cedar Rapids, IA
(319) 364-0314

The Ottawa Intergroup stocks and sells medallions, see their page

If they don't have what you're looking for, they probably know the best way to get it.

Thanks. I know the Ottawa intergroup office sells the medallions but not the plastic chips.

For plastic chips we just use poker chips.
