The bonuses were paid on the sales efforts of 2019, and KBBG reported many members of the group received their highest payment to date.
Managing director of the KBBG Bill Miller commented: “We are absolutely delighted with how successful many of our members were with their bonuses, particularly this year when times have been tougher than ever due to the pandemic.”
When the COVID-19 crisis hit the UK, to support retailers the KBBG paid qualifying members their 2019 bonus two months early to give them a cash injection.
Bill Miller added: “The bonus payments are traditionally paid in May or June, however in view of the extraordinary circumstances; we made an interim payment to qualifying members at the end of March.”

Miller concluded: “Times are tough but there are glimpses of positivity that we must all hold on to.
“For any independent kitchen and bathroom specialist that hasn’t considered joining a buying group before, now is the time to do so.
“The bonus payments provided many of our members with an injection of cash when they needed it the most this year.
“The bonus payments are just one of the many benefits that the KBBG has to offer and we aim to continue to help independent kitchen and bathroom specialists throughout the COVID-19 crises and beyond.”
KBBG has also worked with Virtual 360 Tours Glos to offer its members a discounted rate on the creation of a virtual tour of their retail showroom.
