Sportcraft Launches Retail B2B Exchange
New Web Portal to Grant Easier Ordering and Inventory Access for Independent Retail Partners Nationwide
BUDD LAKE, NJ (March 23, 2011) – Sportcraft® Ltd., America’s leading manufacturer of indoor and outdoor sports products and accessories including table, lawn and tailgating games, dartboards, volleyball, badminton, billiards and table tennis, today announced the launch of its new B2B exchange, a new web portal granting independent retailers access to find and view available inventory, identify distribution centers and purchase products at wholesale prices, conveniently, 24 hours a day.
Sportcraft’s new B2B exchange was created for small, independent retailers – such as campgrounds, local sporting goods stores, general merchandise retailers and more – that do not have the buying power of the major nationwide chains. These retailers can register at www.sportcraft.com by clicking the “Wholesale Partners,” then “New Customers” links at the bottom of the page. Following the prompts, retailers are required to enter their company contact information and Tax ID number. After verification from Sportcraft’s finance department, the retailer will be able to sign in, check inventory and distribution centers and place orders at their convenience.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of our new retail B2B exchange,” said Jeff Kambak, senior vice president of sales for Sportcraft Ltd. “This new initiative will greatly benefit smaller, independent retailers nationwide. As the largest manufacturer in family recreation, Sportcraft has excellent buying power, allowing us to negotiate the best prices available. We take those savings and pass them on to our retail partners. We believe that our B2B exchange will help smaller stores improve inventory turns and gross margin return on investment by helping to manage their stock purchases more efficiently.”
Sportcraft’s new B2B exchange will also provide retailers with two new payment options; credit card or terms that may be extended based on a credit review. Additionally, new customers will receive a 10 percent discount off their first order (shipping excluded) by simply entering the promo code, B2BLAUNCH10, during check out.
Sportcraft products are available at independent and major retailers nationwide including Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, Kmart, Costco, Sports Authority, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Toys “R” Us and many more.
