Nindie.com has promised independent retailers they will get their ‘fair share’ of Wii U stock as the console’s launch approaches.
Koch Media’s Nintendo supply portal says that Wii U can be delivered direct to consumers on behalf of the retailers. The cost to stores will be the normal trade price plus a £2 handling charge.
“This is particularly useful for the new release of Wii U where a day of launch delivery is imperative,” said Koch Media’s MD Craig McNicol.
“Thus take the money at the till, enter the order on Nindie.com with the consumer’s delivery address, and Koch will deliver with a delivery note with the retailer’s details on.
“Our Nindie.com scheme has strove for six years since its inception to deal with the independent marketplace on a transparent basis with allocations. A lot has changed in the marketplace in that time but for sure one thing that hasn’t is that there is never enough stock of highly demanded lines to satisfy everyone’s wishes.”
