I have just met with my supplier to discuss the coming year and discounts etc. and they would be happy to offer the same level of discount to any members of Landscape Juice.
Whilst I can't mention the name just yet in this posting they are probably the UK's leading
chain of builders’ merchants. Supplying building products and materials from
well over 500 branches across the UK.
You wouldn't need a trade account to qualify but if you wish you could apply for one subject to their conditions or simply pay cash / card on the day.
Unfortunately I can't give examples of prices but it would be fair to say that the
trade discount would be very good particularly if you tend to buy in small quantities The prices are also regional so some areas of the UK could expected slight better deals. Also depending upon the particular branch, they may be able to offer a discount off their equipment hire charges.
Whilst I can't promise the discount to always be better than your normal supplier (or in fact the discount that you currently enjoy from this company) it is certainly worth using them to check out prices and play one supplier off the other.
They have also promised to review the trade discount every three months based upon group activity. The more we all use them the better for all of us. I must stress that I will not be receiving any special discount or kick back based upon volume of sales but should you use this facility and it saves you money then you can buy me a drink if we ever meet up or make a small token donation to Landscape Juice.
If you are interested, please email me at Suppliers@thebigoutdoors.co.uk
and all the information I need would be your work location (nearest main
town). I will then Email everyone back next week with the group discount code which you would have to quote when ordering supplies. Periodically, I will forward Emails from the supplier with details of any special deals etc.
Should you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me on the above Email address or via PM from the LJN.
