North South provides members with a wealth of knowledge and ideas through  networking and communication. This is achieved through exhibitions,  buying meetings, overseas discovery tours & conferences each year  where members meet to discuss topical trade issues, our supplier base  and associated merchandise.

For the most part, North South members are non-competing retailers. This fact promotes the sharing of  ideas during our exhibitions and meetings giving suppliers the  opportunity to interact with the members in a casual, friendly  atmosphere, fostering long-term relationships.


North South prints individualised catalogues for the stores. Not only a name  change-out but individual offers, price changes and selected product  change-outs are allowed. Also a selection of catalogue types, sizes and  paper stock to enable you to Taylor make your catalogue to suit your  individual town or position in the market or the target market you want  to attract, for each and every catalogue.

These catalogues are heavenly subsidised with the intention of makingĀ  them a very affordable and necessary marketing tool for you.
