Our shop has changed, and it’s not just the name which is new.
Following a comprehensive review of the shop, led by Graham Smith, one of the EBU directors, we identified a number of changes which should be made to ensure its continued success, and to take advantage of opportunities for it to grow. These changes will help it meet its core functions of providing bridge supplies to the widest number of members at the lowest possible prices, and ensure that it generates revenue which can be reinvested in the EBU. All profit from sales in the shop is reinvested by the EBU in activities and services for its members and affiliated clubs.
- The shop will be called The Bridge Warehouse to reflect that it is open to all, and not just EBU members
- The prices displayed will be the fully discounted prices - the price you see is now the price you pay, with no need to calculate your discounted price. This will help everyone see that on most items our prices are the lowest available
- These prices will be available to everyone, as we hope this will increase sales to non-members and unaffiliated clubs, and increase the profits which the EBU can reinvest
- We will have intermittent special offers which are available only to affiliated clubs, EBU members, and/or EBTA members
We hope that this is the start of an exciting, and profitable, new era for the shop which will ultimately benefit all members. If everyone shops at The Bridge Warehouse we will all be better off, so please support it.
