Happy holidays

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2021! 

In 2021, we will continue to wow you at all our locations with the latest trends, amazing collections, and an interesting mix of Fashion x Lifestyle.  

Did you know that your client card gives you access to all three locations? TICA in Aalsmeer and Trends & Trade and Fashion Extras in Venlo. At each cash & carry you’ll find a completely different range of products, so they’ll definitely be worth a visit in 2021. By purchasing products from all our locations, you can create a unique collection and wow your customers with exciting product combinations. For example, why not try combining fashion and lifestyle or expand your gift collection with delicious food products?  

See you in 2021! 

10% discount on the entire Present Time collection

The temperature is falling, the nights are getting darker… winter is well and truly on its way. The festive season is a time for joy and happiness – and this year we will all be spending much more time wrapped up at home. The items in Present Time’s collection are just what you need to inject a little bit of cosiness into your shop, interior, or styling project.  

From 23 December until 4 January you can benefit from a 10% discount on Present Time’s beautiful collection at our cash & carry. Count down to the new year with the beautiful Karlsson clocks or enjoy an oliebol on a comfortably soft Leitmotiv bench. 

Read our COVID-19 measures before your visit, so that you know how to shop safely.

Purchases are monitored and the decision to renew a pass for another year is made on this basis. If applicable, the costs for your annual client cards will be charged to you in 2021; you will receive information about this soon. If you have any questions about the admission policy or the changes to the fees for our client card, please feel free to contact us at info@trendstrade.com.

Admission policy at Trends & Trade, TICA and Fashion Extras

Expressing your uniqueness

Our motivation is to offer you, as a professional, an extensive lifestyle offer so that you can express your uniqueness in your own way. That’s why you need only one client card to purchase at three different locations: TICA in Aalsmeer, and Trends & Trade and Fashion Extras in Venlo.

We carefully screen every request for a client card, so that only professionals making business-related purchases and who are linked to the lifestyle sector can use our purchasing platform. These can be professional resellers as well as end users from different sectors.

Challenges in a complex market

To run a profitable business, you need to stand out from the competition. So, it’s no surprise that businesses are increasingly looking for related products to mix with their own ranges or styling project. As a result, blurring market boundaries are becoming increasingly complex. To help you navigate this, we ensure our range is large and diverse enough for you to effortlessly complete your collection or interior design project.

What’s my neighbour doing at TICA or Trends & Trade?!

Given the increasing abstraction of the market, it can also be a challenge for us to screen client requests. That’s why we have a hygiene code and a sector code. This means that only companies with a business purpose are granted access, and purchases are monitored according to the purchasing objective and the nature of the business. By their very nature, purchases for a styling project are different from purchases for a gift collection or florist’s shop.

We understand that the consequences of blurring market boundaries present challenges for businesses. For example, how does the local gift shop distinguish itself from the range of gifts you can find at the petrol station? Or how should you organize your interior design project to ensure it’s profitable as a whole?

We’re here to help you find solutions! If you need advice for your business, please feel free to contact us.

Fees for client card to change in 2021

PLEASE NOTE: As part of our admission policy, the fees for our client card will change from 2021 onwards. As of the new year, an annual card is valid for one calendar year and costs €49.50 per company. If you’re renewing your card, we will contact you with more information in due course!

If you have any questions about the admission policy or the changes to the fees for our client card, please feel free to contact us at info@trendstrade.com.
