Wholesale Marketplace Faire Launches in the UK

By Lauren Fruncillo March 24, 2021 - 4:21 pm

Wholesale Marketplace Faire has announced their launch in the UK. The platform will also launch in the Netherlands, with other European markets to follow in the coming months, accelerating Faire’s mission of empowering entrepreneurs everywhere.

Faire has been dedicated to transforming retail by providing the tools and technology small businesses need to thrive and compete with major retail chains. Growing 200% year over year, Faire currently serves over 170,000 independent retailers across North America, representing more retail locations than Marks & Spencer, Boots, Aldi, Starbucks, and Tesco combined. Additionally, Faire’s brand community has grown to over 15,000 brands based in over 70 countries, with the United Kingdom representing the third largest demographic of brands on the platform.

“We believe that with the right technology and resources, the independent retail community is an unstoppable force even in the face of insurmountable odds. We are thrilled to begin servicing retailers in the UK, and also recognise that the challenges facing the retail landscape in Europe are unique. That’s why we’re grateful to be partnering with both global and local organizations including the Department for International Trade and London & Partners to ensure we can provide the distinctive support needed to tackle the demands facing the international retail industry today.”
– said Max Rhodes, CEO, Faire

According to Faire, their expansion into Europe marks a step towards creating a truly globalised marketplace where local retailers and brands around the world can seamlessly connect and meaningfully compete against retail giants. With over half of consumers in the United Kingdom believing shopping from small businesses offers something unique and more consumers increasing their spending with local businesses the future for SMBs looks bright.

    Thanks for the pointer. I have signed up, and placed my first order. There is free UK shipping for an introductory period. I’m a fan already.

    That’s a point. However, you could ask your supplier to include one of their own invoices with your parcel.

    I no longer sell on Amazon.
