Flooring buying groups are companies that provide business development resources and networking solutions to independent specialty flooring retailers. Individual retailers that join buying groups are able to take advantage of the consolidated buying power of hundreds of member stores that focus their purchasing power on a select assortment of products from affiliated suppliers. The net result is overall lower pricing, better terms and higher rebates than any individual retailer could achieve on their own. Joining a flooring buying group can help you succeed in multiple areas of your business that will help it excel over and above your competition.
