Hi

I am looking at opening a sports retails shop.

Is it possible for me to purchase direct from the brands themselves, or do you normally have to go through a supplier. If I am required to go through a 3rd party what is the easiest way to get contact details for wholesalers in specific fields.

Many thanks
