Independent garden centres now have a way to operate and increase their profit potential with the buying power of a national player with the launch of TBG.
TBG?s Allan Durning explained: ?We have been putting together this unique offering for more than 12 months and are now at the right point in the process to go to market and offer a fantastic opportunity for small to medium garden centres to flex the same buying muscle as some of the big national groups.
?We are the industry?s first category-focused purchasing initiative with an innovative new approach that gives a new standard in buying efficiency. We offer group deals sourced from a portfolio of market-leading suppliers. But apart from being category specific, TBG is designed to offer its members other significant benefits.
?First and foremost, all deals are negotiated for the members by the buying group, thus removing the onerous task of membership negotiations with numerous suppliers, providing members with the freedom to focus on and develop their own businesses.?
The buying process itself is expertly managed by a dedicated professional team – with unrivalled levels of experience gained at senior levels in the industry. In short, a buying group that will listen to what its members want and simply buy better than the rest.
As part of the launch TBG is offering ground-breaking introductory deals including a limited number of reduced-cost membership places on a first come, first served basis. An email shot explaining all is going out to UK independent garden centres this week.
Durning concluded: ?It?s what the industry has been waiting for and TBG is eager to help garden centres across the UK achieve levels of profitability they could only previously have dreamed of.?
