    Hello there

    I was driving down my local high street today when I saw one of the shops for rent

    This got me thinking as ive wanted to add a plumbing supplies business to run along side my current plumbing company for a long time now, why don’t I rent it out, so I pulled over and phoned the owner! Wow they only want £5000 a year rent.

    It’s a nice size shop and would be ideal for a small shop selling plumbing fixtures and fittings etc.

    But now I am stuck as to where do I buy the stock from? Ive had a look at Google but with no luck.

    Can anyone recommend anyone?

    Any advice is welcomed

    Thanks

    All building and plumbing product manufacturers are looking for outlets to stock there products. Go into your local merchant and pick up copies of Professional Builder and professional Plumber magzine. This will provide yo with loads of information on product and who to contact. Also have a look a tigerfixings.com we have products that are perfect for merchants and we would assit.
    Regards

    Hi Robert

    It's important to be a little more specific, feel free to PM details if you wish, but some idea of quantity (number of items) and total price would be needed.

    @S90GAM - I have noticed a few competitively price job lots on eBay. I looked to stock the van but the amounts are more like ex. merchant stock. Depending how quick they want rid, may get a deal. Not me selling.
