Vape supplier Aquavape has teamed up with some of the UK’s leading symbol groups to provide a ‘Direct to Store’ service for retailers.
Spar, AF Blakemore, Nisa, Bargain Booze and Best-one are among the groups involved in an arrangement that offers free delivery and margins of up to 50 percent to retailers.
The initiative includes Aquavape’s full range of products such as the firm’s own range of vape products as well as e-liquids and devices from Vampire Vape, Nasty Juice, Innokin and Smok.
Ebrahim Kathrada, director of Aquavape said: “The vape category is big business and has seen a huge spike in growth since the pandemic. Convenience stores have come to the realisation that partnering up with a reliable vape supplier is essential in both ensuring that the needs of consumers are met and that stores get the help and support when required, whether that’s price, service, display solutions or availability.”
While Aquavape completes each order and offers free delivery on each shipment, the tie-in with major symbol group wholesalers means store owners are able to invoice their main supplier for their vape products.
Kathrada said: “We offer a one stop solution which gives the retailer access to strong brands delivered direct to their door. You deal with one supplier for all your vaping needs. If your store is part of any of the facias included in the programme then you can also get invoiced directly from them making the whole process even easier. And if you feel like you are ready to step it up you and become a vape destination Aquavape offer a turnkey solution which supports you in display furniture from counter stands, to floor standing display units all the way up to vape store in store concepts.”
