Stax launches its Big Green Book

by | Mar 1, 2022 | Promotions | 0 comments

The eagerly anticipated 2022 Stax Big Green Book has now launched , with the non-food wholesaler perfectly positioned to serve independent garden centres in England and Scotland via its five purpose-built warehouse and distribution centres.

Set out in the usual, user-friendly format with comprehensive product information, the 308-page full colour garden catalogue has been specifically designed for ease of use by garden centre retailers.

With a garden range of well over 3,000 lines and official distributor deals with key sector brands including Evergreen, SBM Life Science, RSPB, Harris and Flymo, the catalogue gives a clear indication of Stax showing its commitment to the sector.

Purchasing director, Simon Wright comments: “Our commitment to providing the best products and service for our retailers remains at the core of our business. We have acted on feedback from our team of experienced reps who visit our garden centre customers regularly, and have worked hard to source the best selling products at the right price, which ensures our customers can pass on great value.”

The national sales team of 16 representatives gives Stax the ability to provide an excellent level of customer service to garden centre businesses. The team of gardening sales representatives are currently distributing the new catalogue to customers, and it will also be available to pick up in your local branch.

The full range of gardening products is available both on a delivered basis and via cash and carry from each of the five main Stax branches, plus a reduced range is available from the Edinburgh depot.

Continued investment is also evident across the company’s own brands with the Ambassador range of premium quality products now including a range of greenhouse heaters and accessories.

New suppliers featuring this year include Char-broil with a range of gas and charcoal BBQs, and Clever Pots; 2022 also sees the return of the Seriously Good Range from Harris and Burg-Wachter padlocks and post boxes.

Joint managing director, David Hibbert, comments: “We are totally committed to supporting UK garden centres, and we are backing up our words by continual training and investment in our sales team and product ranges. This, along with our expansion of the Pagoda Garden Furniture range, means we’ll be perfectly placed to help garden centres capitalise on growth opportunities this year.”
