Booker claims it is giving independent retailers risk free opportunities to profit from the festive season with seasonal sale or return offers. Cash and carry customers can return any unsold and unopened cases of Booker own label Malt House Vintners or branded wines and spirits together with their invoice, to a Booker branch between January 4-19 2001. The deal also applies to more than 2,000 own label lines from Happy Shopper, Tuck Shop and Booker Chef's Larder. "We want our customers to enjoy the festive season as much as their customers," said marketing director Steven Sharp. "They can maximise the festive trading opportunity without running the risk of losing money," he added. {{NEWS }}
