CIH Announces New Associate Membership

Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd. (CIH) has introduced an associate membership package, to extend the benefits of being part of Europe’s largest buying group to even more independent retailers of electrical appliances.

Associate members can benefit from CIH’s buying power, have access to its fully stocked warehouses and three deliveries a week, with minimal joining fees and no upfront investment. CIH associate members will be able to retail Euronics agency products, from all of the major brown and white goods suppliers with exclusive models from brands such as Blomberg and Dyson, which their customers are unable to purchase anywhere else on the high street or internet.

The new associate membership package offers retailers the benefit of being part of a buying group and can act as a stepping-stone to becoming a fully-fledged CIH member, where the electrical retailer can benefit from national advertising and marketing support, group based account support, online sales, as well as advice and guidance from long-standing CIH members through Euronics’ regional groups.

Stuart Cook, Chief Executive Officer, Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd says: “The associate membership is designed to offer support to the independent retailing industry and is a great opportunity for independent retailers to strengthen their offering in a highly competitive market. We negotiate supplier trading terms on behalf of our members and agents, securing some of the most competitively priced products in the market and now, thanks to the associate membership package, we can offer these terms to an even broader number of independent retailers of electrical products.”

For more information on the CIH associate membership please call 01264 320500, select option 3, followed by * or email membership@cihgroup.com

Interview opportunities are available. Please email hannah@jmmpr.co.uk for further details.
