There are no joining or weekly membership fees to be a Budgens retailer, although stores need to achieve our minimum brand criteria. The cost can vary dependent on the individual store circumstances and any equipment requirements.
We have a variety of store formats which cover smaller community stores, local neighbourhood shops, larger supermarkets and a range of options for forecourt sites. The key is understanding your customers and their shopping needs and matching the format to those requirements.
Following a site assessment the team help you through all stages of converting an existing store or opening a new one. This includes store design, liaising with shop fitters, product range reviews and staff training along with recruitment and marketing advice. On going support is provided by a dedicated Retail Development Manager, our Customer Services team, our central office team and our retailer website.
We request that stores purchase a minimum of £10,000 per week through the Budgens distribution depot.
We have a simple rebate scheme which enables you to earn up to 6% discount. The rebate is paid every 4 weeks and is based on the purchases made from our distribution depot. If you have more than one store we can offer aggregated buying across your stores and can also include purchases made at your local Booker Cash and Carry.
A Budgens can link to a number of IT suppliers and your equipment may be able to be used following an assessment by the IT providers.
