‘Find Your Local Merchant’ with the new Blackberry App

Published:  14 March, 2011

LONDON: Following the successful launch of the independent merchant locator application for the iPhone and Smart Phones on the Android system, NMBS have now launched a Blackberry version.

Available through the Blackberry App World by searching ‘Independents Locator’ the app will provide Blackberry users with access to location details for all NMBS Members. It will work in the same way as the iPhone and Android apps in that a user can locate an Independent either by using their phone’s GPS or by inputting their Post Code. The application provides the user with clear directions, which includes a map as well as a telephone number and website address.

The 'I Love Independents' campaign aims to promote the major benefits for the tradesman to trade with Independent Merchants, these include:

  • Local Knowledge - Building Materials can be bought from local businesses that are able to support the end user by offering local decisions, for local problems, whilst having the knowledge to deliver national solutions.
  • The People - Independents are staffed by people in tune with the customer and they make a big difference. They have excellent product knowledge as well as understanding the local market and needs.
  • Stock - Independents hold a good stocking range and depth. This allows the end user to have the confidence that they can buy the product when they need it.
  • Competitive Offers - Most leading Independents are supported by NMBS, the UKs leading buying society for Independent Merchants. From this you can be sure that your local Independent has the ability to source and deliver, competitively, all your building materials.
