Gardners EU was born out of a desire to streamline the supply chain from the UK into the EU. It offers the same great range of 500,000 + books, film, music, and merchandise as Gardners (UK) but without the administrative complications and costs. This solution provides our suppliers and customers with the seamless service they have come to expect. As we progress into 2022 additional services will be added to our European offer, enhancing this offering further.
Sitting alongside Gardners (UK), Gardners EU is a separate sister company – the two businesses work alongside each other to form a cohesive partnership allowing customers to order quickly and hassle free from within the EU. There is a focus on intra-EU trade, so currently there are no customs charges, border fees or duty at the point of delivery. There are also no brokerage fees to contend with.
Existing Gardners (UK) customers can open an EU account, with both accounts running concurrently should they wish. The transition is simple, Gardners EU will also accept new customers that wish to have a single account only with Gardners EU.
Both Gardners (UK) and Gardners EU sit within The Little Group. The Little Group offers the most comprehensive range of physical and digital services available for books and entertainment across the trade.
