Costcutter storefront

Your local knowledge combined with our retail expertise is the perfect partnership. With unrivalled buying power, specialist advice and ongoing support we can tackle market challenges, compete against the multiples and help grow your business the way you want to.

Best Pricing & Power

We offer the largest volume buying power in the UK convenience sector – worth £5bn, through our joint venture buying company, The BuyCo, whose sole purpose is to negotiate the best prices for our retailers.

Our pricing is simple, transparent, fair and incredibly competitive. You can offer shoppers excellent prices because of our great wholesale prices, delivering strong margins for retailers. There are no hidden charges, no surcharges, no membership fees and no low or missed order fees. We also offer competitive rebates.

Best Brands & Formats

You want a store that shoppers trust and recognise, and that has your personal touch and is tailored to meet the needs of your community. Our three powerful retail brands – Costcutter, kwiksave and Mace – are famous for value and delivering a strong retail experience across a broad range of convenience formats, including high street, village, large urban stores, forecourts and CTNs. Our partnership with Simply Fresh complements our brands and present exciting growth opportunities.

The Best Range & Promotions

We recognise and respond to the on-going change in convenience shopping, from distress purchase to regular grocery shops which is why we offer over 10,000 best-sellers so you can tailor your range, the best promotions in the independent sector with over 300 deals every three weeks and free POS to ensure your promotions are unmissable and drive sales.

We also have an extensive list of direct-to-store local and regional suppliers so you can source local produce

Big & Local

Our own brand Independent offers high quality at great value prices. It is a great alternative to big brands across three tiers – Independent Trader, Independent and Independent Specialist – and has been created just for local shops, giving people more reasons to shop and stay local.

Consumer Marketing

We build awareness of the brands with marketing that is focused on your local community – building engagement and driving sales. We significantly invest in TV and advertising, free POS, bespoke leaflets and we are developing industry-leading digital marketing. We also boost sales with major seasonal promotions and events.


In partnership with Palmer and Harvey, we deliver a personal and flexible service with Tri-temp vehicles allowing you to get all your goods in one easy to manage delivery at a frequency that is right for your store.


Our cutting edge Activ Technology systems, including ActivCPoS, ActivOC and our retailer portal ActivHUB, have been developed in-house by retailers for retailers to make your ordering process hassle free.

We’re Better Together

We have been championing independent retailers for the past 28 years and continue to grow year on year with more stores than ever before. Together we can make sure that it is the independent retailer that triumphs.
