Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether you have ever had an account, which they closed, or they have just refused to open one please?
I have not had accounts with them before, but do with many others. they are just refusing to open one. Also they say about distance but do serve 2 shops within a mile radius. I am 2.3 miles from one and 3.3 from the other
originally there was 5 tackle shops this then reduced to 3 so there accounts obviously grew bigger. however where I have opened my shop there was a previous shop that traded near here for 20 years which they served.
Ok - sadly there is not much you can do about his.

It is a commercial decision whether or not they allow accounts to be opened.
What you can do is write to the Competition and Markets Authority to see if they will investgiate.
You can't take the supplier to Court directly as you have no contract
So all you can do is complain to the CMA who can investigate your complaint.
Their website is:
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
so do I not have fair competitive rights
I agree, but you can't take action only the Government can against the supplier
and I argue to the fact that they served a previous shop
Yes indeed. But again only the CMA can prosecute and deal with this sadly.
and also some of them did say in there emails not at this time? so I feel that I am being boycoted by the other two shops to prevent me from growing
I agree, that is why you need to complain to the CMA. They can take action and prosecute for not allowing competition
Does that help?
thank you very much
No Im fine now thank you, ***** ***** looked up the cma and it does look by what I read that I possibly could have a case. thank you once again
