Independent thinking

For over 20 years Select & Save has helped independent retailers prosper in a fiercely competitive environment.

The business is privately owned by our Directors, Kam Sanghera and Andrew King, who between them, have over 60 years of experience working in and as retailers.

Through carefully managed expansion playing to our strengths in the Midlands, East Midlands and the North West, we now have over 150 members. The business is re-energised and we are delighted with what our members are delivering for their customers.

Key to our success is that, at Select & Save, we understand what it is like to be an independent retailer.

We are retailers too. Our Managing Directors actively run their own Select & Save stores and every decision is based on our first-hand experience as independent retailers.

Having grown the family retail business from one store to 12 and created Select & Save, Kam's entrepreneurial instincts helped him to develop additional, and very successful, business interests. But, as Joint Managing Director of the Group, his approach remains hands on and his passion for retail has been passed on to his children, who are now working with him in the business. Kam is well connected within the sector and, together with his team, is helping to shape its future.
