NAHS celebrates a year with Bira
The National Association of Health Stores (NAHS) is celebrating its first anniversary, following its collaboration with The British Independent Retailers Association (Bira) in 2018.
The NAHS has been working for its members since 1931 and it continues to be run wholly by retailers. The NAHS provides specialist support and representation for independent health stores. In order to meet its members’ growing expectations for affordable business services and advice, their Board sought the support of Bira last year.
With over 30 services available to its membership, including an inclusive and unlimited legal advice line and its own bank, Bira gives NAHS members peace of mind, as well as saves them money and time.
Avril McCracken from the NAHS said: “Bira membership gives our members access to a wide range of financial benefits and support and gives our industry greater national recognition and influence.
“The NAHS committee greatly appreciates the use of bira facilities for our quarterly meeting and the ongoing services and assistance of bira staff.”
NAHS members have already saved money through their membership, with member’s reporting the following savings: £800 a year on accountancy, £130 a month on credit card fees, £120 a month on business banking and £700 a year on legal advice.
