Select and Save switches “buy and supply” deal

Birmingham, UK: Midlands-based symbol group Select & Save has switched from Nisa to Bestway Wholesale for its supply chain arrangements, according to the website Talking Retail.

The group, which claims more than 100 stores across the UK and recently, said in March that it was reviewing its supply chain options. It has now awarded a new five-year “buy and supply” deal to Bestway Wholesale to replace its long-standing tie-up with Nisa.

The agreement, which runs for an initial five-year period, will see Select & Save stores receive their beers, wines and spirits and ambient deliveries from Bestway via its nationwide depot network, while chilled and fresh are delivered from Bestway’s dedicated chilled distribution centre in Coventry.

The group said the move was needed so it could “continue to offer members the stability and confidence they expect while letting them develop their entrepreneurial skills and develop their businesses”.

The new supply arrangement, says Select & Save, is the first of many initiatives that will “propel the group forward”.

Co-founder Kam Sanghera said: “Bestway stood out from the beginning of the process, as they offered the scale, range, competitiveness and the commitment to our business that we were looking for.

“Our partnership with Bestway will ensure members benefit from a strong ‘buy and supply’ model with great pricing, fantastic shopper promotions and frequent deliveries from an established, successful and stable supplier.”

James Hall, symbol development director at Bestway, said: “I believe with Bestway’s scale and expertise, we can improve its members’ sales and margin and deliver a consistent supply chain solution that provides its members with exactly what it is they want, and a little bit more.”
