b.gentle is a family run soap making business from Mt Buninyong in Victoria. I’ve sold their products in my shops for many years. Customers love their products. Them being local is a bonus. While they do sell direct, they also sell their products through many retailers including newsagents.
The b-gentle range works particularly well with older shoppers. Their products give you a good Australian success story to share in the sales pitch.
This week I am drawing attention to several local suppliers newsagents could consider. Stocking products from these and similarly local suppliers adds credibility to our shop local pitch. To me, local products are products made and / or designed in Australia. If my newsagency was in a country area my focus would be more on products sourced even closer to home.
