Hi Trader,

Welcome to the forum, and thanks for your query.

I’m not sure if I understand what you mean though – is it that your competitors are going to your suppliers and asking to stock their products too?

All the best,
Jayne

Hi Jayne
yes that is what I mean , we put a lot of time and effort into sourcing our labels and products as I am sure a lot of other retailers do , and also making sure our competitors don’t stock the same already , but seem to constantly battling with wholesalers after finding that our competitors down the road have been allowed to stock the same label/product that we have already without even a courtesy call from the wholesaler . We have tried exclusivity agreements etc . and that works sometimes but not always , the offending retailers always seem to get around it somehow .It is very frustrating and just another business hurdle to jump but I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem and how they approach it .
thanks for your reply
cheers
