UK furniture brand Symphony has organised five open days at its Barnsley headquarters for Retra members who are interested in selling kitchens to attend.

The dates are:

  • June 15;
  • July 20;
  • August 17;
  • September 21; and
  • October 19.

Robert Williamson, Symphony’s national business development manager, said: “We will look to put those Retra members up either the night before or the night of the event, so that they have a pleasurable experience and we can meet and network before and afterwards.

“This will be a great experience for Retra members interested in kitchens to come and see first-hand independent retailers’ preferred supply partner for kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and home office furniture.

“It will also allow myself and my colleagues to illustrate how Retra members can share in the success achieved by many other electrical retailers.”

Earlier this year, Symphony welcomed the Retra board and staff to its head office and production facility at Pen Hill, Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The privately-owned business, which is an approved supplier to the Sirius Buying Group, became a Retra associate member a few months ago.

Retra chief executive  Howard Saycell, said: “Retra is delighted to welcome Symphony as a new associate member. Many of our members are either active in the fitted kitchen marketplace or are considering entering it.

“The set-up is very impressive. Any member thinking of moving into this market can get a very comprehensive guide on how to get started, plus the levels of support on offer for a new entrant into this sizable market opportunity.”

Mr Saycell added: “Robert Williamson and his team would be delighted to talk to any Retra members thinking of expanding into fitted kitchens.

“In order to get the full benefit of their knowledge and experience first-hand their commitment to independent electrical retailers, it is well worth making the trip to Yorkshire.”
