BHETA is to host another of its ‘Meet The Buyer’ retail networking days with Wilko, the home and hardware retailer which now has over 400, mostly High Street, stores in the UK. 

The event which will include the whole Wilko buying team will take place on 13th November in the Shelley Suite, Best Western West Retford Hall, North Road, Retford, Nottinghamshire.

Wilko’s listings include all the following categories – home living, kitchen and dining, decorating and DIY, storage, garden and outdoor, cleaning and household and stationery and craft, as well as pet, seasonal, toys and health and beauty.  It positions itself as providing simple solutions to help families get their day to day lives sorted as quickly, easily and affordably as possible.  At the Meet The Buyer event, Wilko buyers are looking for companies who can offer a wide variety of products.  Current supplier rationalisation means that prospective suppliers must be able to offer multiple lines and garden suppliers need to have drop ship capabilities.

Commenting on the forthcoming event, BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones, “We are delighted to be providing members with another great opportunity to schedule face to face meetings with the key buyers for their categories.  It’s also exciting to be working with a retail partner which literally spans all of the sectors of interest to the BHETA membership.”

Wilko Retail Limited, formerly Wilkinson Cash Stores and Wilkinson Hardware Stores was founded in Leicester by James Kemsey Wilkinson in 1930 and remains in the hands of the founding family today.  Companies participating in the event will be allocated a 20-minute appointment time.  A maximum of two people from each supplier company will be allowed and suppliers are urged to use the time available to concentrate on the features and benefits of the products they are offering, supported by cost price proposals.

Will continued, “This event is sure to attract a big response and there will be a limit to the number of people that can be accommodated on the day.  Interested suppliers are therefore urged to make themselves known to Helen Farnell in BHETA Member Services team as soon as possible, so that we can confirm arrangements.”

Helen can be contacted at BHETA on 0121 237 1130 or email hf@bheta.co.uk.
