Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

BHETA to hold meet the buyer day with Wilko

Published: 18 October 2019 - John King
 

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) 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 13 November in the Shelley Suite, Best Western West Retford Hall, North Road, Retford, Nottinghamshire, UK.

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, said: “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.”

As we near the end of another summer season, which product category do you expect to be the biggest seller as we head towards to autumn and winter?
