is to source and supply better for our members, all year, every year.
Composite Retail is one of New Zealand’s largest independent retail cooperatives. That means our stores aren’t part of some massive and impersonal chain, they’re all independently owned and operated unique relationships in the local community.
The key benefit to our preferential suppliers is gaining access to all of our retailer members for your industry to increase your sales and market share with our members.
In many divisions we hold buying events where our members attend our expos to purchase their next season's products.
Many divisions offer guaranteed payment so suppliers get one payment from Composite in full and on time every month. No credit risk for suppliers in these divisions.
In our pharmacy division retailers are committed to stocking 1,000 core items from our preferred suppliers. A quarterly review with suppliers determines what items are core and any new products to be stocked.
In consideration for these benefits we require a discount or rebate for members and a cooperative fee.
Centralised buying, rebates and unrivalled networking
We are continuing to find ways to support members access products at the best price, in the easiest way. We have just launched EDI stock replenishment with one department as well as support with merchandising and planograms
Composite is a well-established cooperative that has been operating since 1968. We were founded by a group of draper stores wanting to utilise their collective buying power to negotiate the best deals for their members. 50 years later this philosophy is still at the heart for the business. We have the collective buying power of over 200 stores through 8 divisions throughout New Zealand.
