Supply Issues - December 2017

As many of you will know, our main supplier, Palmer and Harvey, has gone out of business.  P&H supply all of our convenience, soft drinks, chilled, frozen, alcohol and tobacco products, so this is certainly causing us some issues.

We are finding alternative sources for most of our products, but there will be a few areas noticeable in store.

  • Some product lines will no longer be available - this will especially affect the own brand Independent lines but may also affect some other branded items where they are not readily available from other sources.
  • Many of our planned promotions will not be available.  We are replacing these with other promotions at similar price points where possible, but we may not have as many offers in store as we usually would.
  • Our supplies will not be as regular as they were, so there may be more temporary gaps on the shelves.

Mace are working hard to make new permanent supply arrangements on our behalf and we hope to have a new supplier in place by early 2018.  In the meantime we apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your continuing support.

Steve.
