The KBSA’s retail and corporate membership director Malcolm Scott commented: “I am delighted to welcome all 17 retailers into the KBSA. As the UK’s only trade association that supports the independent KBB retailer, the KBSA offers unrivalled support and business benefits that enable retailers to operate more efficiently and profitably.”
Scott also believes the record number of new members is an encouraging sign for its future growth plans: “We are continuing to invest in our five-year plan to increase the profile of the KBSA and improve member benefits, which has undoubtedly helped us achieve substantial growth in membership this year. 2024 promises to be a great year for the KBSA as we become bigger and stronger, there has never been a better time to join the KBSA.”
Earlier this year, the KBSA also announced five other new retail members: The London Bath Co, Impact Kitchens, Bold Kitchens, Kitchenality and Quarrybank Boutique. The KBSA also held its annual conference in September, which saw a big focus on both apprenticeships and artificial intelligence.
