Budgens, Londis retailers to benefit from new savings package

Londis and Budgens have launched a new package to help their retailers to get better deals on a wide range of operating costs.

Working with Smartsavings, Budgens and Londis said the scheme will enable retailers to benefit from their collective scale and make it easier for them to manage rising costs.

Julie Wirth, finance director for Budgens and Londis explained: “With increased pressure to remain competitive in the retail market and with value remaining critical to shoppers in these tough economic times, managing operating costs is key to being successful in retail. We have worked with our retailers to develop the Smartsavings offer which is a great solution to help our retailers benefit from the economies of scale of our network.”

Some of services available under Smartsavings include energy contracts, waste management, telecoms, cash collections, washroom services, pest control, balers, barrier mats, washroom services and age testing on sales of alcohol and tobacco.

The performance of the deals will be reviewed with retailer representatives for both Budgens and Londis through retailer cost forums.

Richard Beale, managing director of Brightsourcing which delivers the Smartsavings solution added: “We are delighted to be expanding the Smartsavings scheme to all Budgens and Londis retailers. Smartsavings saves time and money by providing a one-stop shop of excellent value deals covering all major merchandise expenditures. It’s totally free to use plus retailers can choose which services they need.”
