What is the aim of the Bridal Retailers Network?
The aim of the Bridal Retailers Network is that its bridal retail members will bring excellence to the industry in the form of a high standard of service to their customers at all times.
The Bridal Retailers Network is an extension of the Bridal Consultancy Service.
The Bridal Consultancy Service was started in 1998 and has grown over the years helping new businesses to set up in a professional and business like manner.
And has also has helped “established” bridal retail outlets to evaluate their already successful businesses or to enhance businesses that need help in going forward.
In the past retailers could only join the Bridal Consultancy Service as a member if they had attended a consultancy session and ordered the bespoke stationary specifically designed for the bridal retail industry.
Due to demand we have felt it necessary to form the Bridal Retailers Network enabling bridal retailers, regardles of time trading, to join the network and benefit from the services offered.
Please see our Services Offered page for the benefits of joining the Bridal Retailers Network.
