Big Red Sales has consistently been big news in the media. Even before the official launch date the trade press was following our progress. Here you'll find a small selection of some of the articles that have appeared in the major trade publications.
Big Red Sales is launching a new retailer sales incentive that will offer 16 winners lunch at the Chewton Glen Hotel in Hampshire and a 3-hour cruise along the south coast of England in a luxury 52ft Sunseeker Manhattan.
Big Red Sales marked its 6th anniversary with the charter of a luxury 57ft Sunseeker power cruiser to take its suppliers from Southampton to Lymington Marina, to lunch at the Chewton Glen hotel located in New Milton, Hampshire.
“As Big Red has just enjoyed its best ever year and is certainly on the crest of a wave, it somehow seemed appropriate to make a splash and celebrate with something a little different,” said director and founder John Reddington
Big Red Sales was started in the middle of the recession and, according to Reddington, turnover and profit have increased every year.
“In 2015, five of the seven calendar months have been record breaking. And with the season yet to arrive, I’m pretty confident.
“My brands are getting stronger. My team of reps is getting stronger and understand better what we are trying to achieve.
“I am frequently offered new brands, but for us to take them on they need to want to penetrate the independent market and feel that this sector is an important part of their UK CE business.”
Commenting on the industry prospects for the rest of 2015 and into 2016, Reddington said he is “upbeat”.
“The general economy is improving. The consumer electronics business gives me confidence. We’re in a market where there are new products coming out all the time to stimulate our sector.”
