Members of The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) from garden, DIY and housewares sectors have held 70 appointments with buyers from The Range at the seventh meet the buyer event in BHETA’s series.
Buyers from The Range were looking to source products or promotions suitable for The Range’s mid-price home, leisure and garden strategy, which they had not seen before. The event took place at The Future Inn Hotel in Plymouth International Business Park.
Jim Chadwick of The Range said: "All the buyers found it a productive day, particularly where suppliers crossed over categories and it allowed a more complete view of their offers. We found some good new products and will look to make it an annual event."
BHETA housewares sector director William Jones said: "The Range product offering embraces everything that BHETA members have to offer, so this was a very exciting opportunity for home improvement and home enhancement members alike.
Home improvement sector director, Peter Stone added, "The Range has shown tremendous growth in the past few years and our winning Meet The Buyer formula certainly proved a success in terms of opening new conversations and even securing listings on the day."
