Purchasing advantages due to our own Logistics department

We also offer a great deal of our suppliers the option of centrally supplying our warehouse, instead of having to drive to each retail store, which is a logistical advantage for manufacturers, saving our clients hard cash.

Direct purchasing

What is more, our clients also benefit from the extensive know-how of our buyers, who are able to negotiate globally outstanding conditions because we buy our products with the partners mentioned above directly from the manufacturer, regardless of whether their head office is in China, South Africa or Schleswig-Holstein. This saves us and our clients additional money.
