Indie Retailing 101: How to Change (and Improve) Your Private Label Supplier


Yes, we've heard your story many, many times. Let me guess, your current private label supplier isn't responsive to your requests, your account manager is no longer employed there, and your new account manager didn't get the appropriate handover for your business needs.

It's very frustrating.

Read on to see how you can easily change your white label supplier to Burning Tree.


Why Should I Change?

Because cannabis retail remains a highly challening in every market. While the recent cannabis retail retraction, consolidation, recalibration has been very hard, price compression in this sector has thinned already slim margins.

Where can you make up some of those lost margins? Naturally private label product lines and accessories are the best next option to augment your revenue as the margins are significantly better.

But, if your existing, (non-Burning Tree), private label supplier isn't answering your emails or picking up the phone, they are actually negatively impacting your bottom line. Not only is it wasting your valuable time trying to get a satisfactory response, but it also delays your product delivery and ability to be sold.


Is it Easy To Change Suppliers?


Changing your private label supplier is really easy. Often your existing private label artwork has similar, if not identical, die lines and templates. This means we can use the same artwork you already have, or quickly adapt the previous artwork to our supply chain.

If you want to change private label suppliers and also use that opportunity to refresh your staid artwork, we can integrate our graphic team to assist with a new designs that will freshen up your merchandise assortment or get you ready for a holiday set.
