Sirius reports “best year to date”

Electrical appliance and kitchen retail industry buying group Sirius has reported its “best year to date, with 2020 marking its most successful period since being first established in 2001, in terms of growth in membership, purchasing and rebates for its members.”

 The Group has been working to support its Approved Members through the pandemic, with regular virtual member meetings, online business updates and presentations from Approved Suppliers, tailored advice and early rebate promise from the moment Covid impacted the retail sector, as well as launching a digital trade show with exclusive deals to help further enhance Members’ bottom lines

Added to that, Sirius claims its largest ever intake of new members to the group last year, taking memberships up to 178 with 250 stores now benefitting from its services. From January 2021, a further four more Approved Members have joined: Clocktower; The Appliance Company; La Redoute; The Real Kitchen Company.

Sirius Buying Group MD Steve Jones (pictured) said: “We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to our new Approved Members and assist them in going to the next level with their business goals in 2021. As our sector prepares for life after lockdown in the light of Government guidelines and new legislation after Brexit, working in unison to serve our customers and local communities has never been more important.

“The retail landscape continues to evolve in 2021, with the prospect of the stamp duty holiday being extended until the end of June in line with the lockdown roadmap, so we need to focus on our strengths and deliver the difference consistently to consumers and developers alike as the property market takes off this spring. The digital marketplace gives us a new space to communicate our passion for the latest products and innovations, years of highly skilled practical knowledge and exceptional service. Contract interiors also remain a key area of growth, especially in the premium market, and we are delighted to advise Sirius Approved Members about the opportunities which may be available to them here, depending on their business needs.”
