Stockist Terms & Conditions
We are so excited to partner with other businesses who have a heart to love and encourage women.
Winning in retail is being able to have the 'edge'. Something unique and fresh. We want to help you achieve this edge and for that reason, approval is needed to become a Sister & Soul stockist. The approval process allows us to determine the proximity of your store as a comparison to other stockists in your area. Exclusivity will be evaluated on a case by case basis with a number of factors considered.
If you are accepted as a stockist, however do not place a re-order within six months, Sister & Soul will consider the stockist time to have lapsed and exclusivity will be void. Re-application will need to occur.
