Become a Supplier
Lucky 7 are constantly working on ways to deliver a higher level of compliance and support for our supply partners in the independent convenience channel. Examples of our commitment can be found in the monthly checks and measures we have, such as:
– Monthly site visits and promotional compliance checks by field team
– IPad audit application & reporting capabilities utilised by field team
– Planned Monthly Call Cycle activity
Lucky 7 runs a calendar month promotional program for our members which include a strong mix of core convenience lines. This is important for both our supply partners and our membership as it demonstrates a balanced approach to promotional activity. This is welcomed by all of our direct supply partners as it limits the amount of activity in each category.
Lucky 7 is a banner first and a buying group second and as such our members enjoy the same level of supplier trading support and service as any other major convenience banner group. For our suppliers we offer a strong well supported member base of over 150 sites nationally and a promotional program that offers the same high quality point of sale as any other major banner group. Our members have access to the new Lucky 7 website containing retail support tools such as category planograms which are negotiated with our supply partners & we are working with our members to coordinate planogram implementation at store level. Our field team have strong relationships with each and every member and we engage with all of our trading partners at a local field level.
