Music Box Leisure is on the prowl for new retail accounts – as Morrisons appoints the firm its long-term exclusive distribution partner.
Morrisons told MCV that its future supply route would be handled by Music Box last week, after the company stepped in following the collapse of its former wholesaler EUK at Christmas.
Music Box has this week revealed that it is looking for opportunities” to work with more retailers – and adding to its games buying staff to deal with increased workload.
A job vacancy currently advertised reveals that the company is looking to hire games buyers as it ‘grows our games buying division at all levels with those who have experience in the games market’. It adds: ‘The video games market is becoming a big part of the MBL business and those who produce results
can look at truly exciting career prospects.’
Music Box games buyer Dan Whitehead told MCV: We deal with 35 publishers, and we need more people to deal with the workload in games. Our games operation is going from strength to strength.
He added: We’re always looking for other opportunities and to service other retailers.”
In addition to supermarkets, Music Box supplies motorway service stations and ferries. Its strategy is to source product from entertainment companies and create multi-buy ranges tailored to each retailer’s requirements.
As well as Morrisons, the Lancashire company also serves Co-Op, Somerfield, Makro, Wilkinsons and more.
It’s also currently advertising for games buyers in the MCV Jobs pages.
