Our members own Composite Retail Cooperative; that means all decisions are made with our members wellbeing front and centre. Our profits stay within the members and help grow our business.

Better Buying

We reduce complexity and negotiate better prices by utilising group purchasing strength to centrally negotiate better deals to secure members discounts and rebates. This drives greater margins for your business.

Reduced Cost

We make it easy and cost effective to buy through preferred suppliers with local and international trade expos and online ordering options.


We have many divisions of independent retailers who have similar challenges and opportunities as each other. We have a range of conferences, Expos and forums where members can get together.

Private Label

We have our own private label brands as well as distributorships; we take our members ideas from design to manufacturing and deliver these to your door from international as well as local suppliers.

The Strength of networking with the Power of Independence

Composite Retail is one of New Zealand’s largest independent retail cooperatives. That means our members aren’t part of some massive and impersonal chain, they’re all independently owned and operated with unique relationships in their local community.

  • 100% New Zealand owned and operated
  • 100% Cooperative

For our members' customers it means that they get all the benefits of dealing with a local business while enjoying the perks of great prices and the broad product range of a nationally operated business. We provide the range and diversity you need for your retail business, as well as the service and local experience that only our team can deliver.

About Us

Composite is a well-established cooperative that has been operating since 1968. We were founded by a group of draper stores wanting to utilise their collective buying power to negotiate the best deals for their members. 50 years later this philosophy is still at the heart for the business. We have the collective buying power of over 200 stores through 8 divisions throughout New Zealand.
