Van Remoortel NV and PW Markets enter into strategic partnership

New B-2-B cash & carry concept for the home, gift, garden, and fashion sector

Van Remoortel NV and PW Markets – B2B cash & carry retailers active in the home, gift, and garden sector in the Netherlands and Belgium – are joining forces to develop a new cash & carry concept that caters to markets in Belgium and northern France. Van Remoortel owns a wholesale company and a cash & carry marketplace in the Belgian city of Belsele. PW Markets owns the cash & carry concepts Trends & Trade, FashionExtras, and TICA, all of which are located in the Netherlands. Today, director Winny de Cock senior of Van Remoortel NV and director Robert Segers of PW Markets will jointly announce their plans to combine their activities on the Belgian and northern French markets as part of a strategic partnership.

Both companies have been serving the same customer groups for years with their cash & carry concept, but they operate in different countries and regions. They expect the strategic partnership to be advantageous for supply and demand and therefore benefit both purchasing retailers and selling exhibitors.

The parties will jointly implement a new cash & carry concept on 1 October 2016. As part of this concept, some fifty national and international manufacturers and importers of home, gift, and garden products will sell their goods in their own cash & carry shop-in-shop in Belsele, which has a total floor area of 9,500 m². The product range will also be expanded as of this date with 1,000 m² of shop-in-shop fashion exhibitors. Some 25 entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their fashion accessories, clothing, jewellery, and personal care products in an enclosed space.

Dutch companies Trends & Trade Venlo and TICA and Belgian company Van Remoortel are wholesale concepts based on the cash & carry principle. Interior and exterior products are offered to professional retailers on 10,000 to 20,000 square metres of shop floor space. The product range is supplied by various manufacturers and importers. The wholesalers attract professional retailers in their immediate areas, including interior design stores, gift shops, florists, and similar stores.
