Archiving a supplier removes them from any drop-down lists, but retains all their history.  Alternatively, if the supplier has no transactions associated with them you can delete them, which removes their details from the system.

Step 1.

Navigate to Contacts > Suppliers.

Step 2.

Under the appropriate supplier click the Edit contact link. 

Step 3.

Click on the Archive button or, if available, the Delete button.

As noted above, the delete button will only be available if there are no transactions associated with the supplier.

When you now navigate to Contacts > Suppliers, the supplier will appear in the list as Archived. To "unarchive" a supplier, click on their name, select the Edit contact button and then the Restore from archive button.
