Orders placed through bira direct between 1 September and 31 December 2014 to will qualify.

Steve Akers, buyer at bira direct commented: “With this promotion we are focusing on one of the key issues that restrict independents when it comes to re-ordering stock. As the key trading period approaches this campaign will help bira members address a fundamental issue that often frustrates independent retailers whilst at the same time potentially opening up new accounts to our suppliers.”
