KBBG members receive “best ever bonus payments”
The Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group UK (KBBG) has announced that the bonuses paid to its members this year are “the best they have ever been”, due to efforts made in 2019, and many members of the group received their highest payment to date.
KBBG is part of DER KREIS, one of Europe’s largest and most established kitchen and bathroom buying groups. The organisation provides a range of benefits and services to support and increase the success of independent retailers, one of which is the annual supplier bonus payment, which is a reflection of members’ trading success.
Managing Director Bill Miller said: “We are absolutely delighted with how successful many of our members were with their bonuses, particularly this year when times have been tougher than ever due to the pandemic.”
When the COVID-19 crisis hit the UK, KBBG paid qualifying members their 2019 bonus two months early in order to give them a much-needed cash injection. The bonus payments are traditionally paid in May or June.
“Times are tough,” said Miller, “but there are glimpses of positivity that we must all hold onto. For any independent kitchen and bathroom specialist that hasn’t considered joining a buying group before, now is the time to do so.”
