StayBlackpool said that with the ever increasing concerns about business costs, it has launched a partnership with Purchasing for Business a purchasing group based in Kettering which arranges discounts for businesses that aims to to reduce costs and increase profits.
Ian White from StayBlackpool said: “After learning about this specialist organisation from our friends at the B&B Association, StayBlackpool were quick to investigate further.
“Talks with Gurvinder Patara progressed well and we are delighted to now be able to roll out this benefit for our members.”
As well as discounts at B&Q/Tradepoint, Screwfix and a quarterly rebate for catering customers from Bookers the arrangement offers hotelier members an array of other discounts.
Members are required to complete a simple on line registration form and after validation by StayBlackpool, they receive a welcome email and phone call.

"Our buying power will give the StayBlackpool business community access our exclusive pricing, discounts and savings.
