Our Exclusivity Policy
Due to our extensive, time consuming and successful advertising campaigns, we are having an increased number of trade enquiries and one of the key issues they usually raise is that of being exclusive in their town/area. Currently we limit the amount of outlets we supply in a specific area/postcode, however, due to the amount of enquiries and business we are turning away because of this policy, we will have to revise our exclusivity policy. New customers will be advised how many outlets are supplied in their area and if they place regular orders, we will restrict new customers in their area.
I'm sure you will appreciate in this climate that we are reluctant to turn away valuable business and cannot offer exclusivity to those who don't order regularily from us. Having been a previous shop owner I understand frustrations about this and we will continue to monitor the situation.
If you have any queries or feedback, please don't hesitate to contact us.
