Our die engravers and craftsman painstaking pour themselves into each and every piece that leaves the workshop floor so that people around the country can cherish what seems to be becoming a lost art. Retailers around the country have taken notice, and we’ve created a program specifically for them. January 2012 marks the launch of our exciting new Retail Partner Program. As part of this program gift and décor stores will have access to exclusive collections ONLY available to the our retail partners. Becoming a partner is free, and the minimum order size is not aggressive, making it easy to join the program. It is no surprise that top notch service is a priority with this program. In turn, dedicated customer service staff been put in place for our retail partners. We are also in the process of creating the first version of our partner website that will provide tools for advertising, merchandising, downloadable resources, along with digital purchase orders. Needless to say we are excited, and from the feedback we are already receiving from store owners around the nation, we do not stand alone in our excitement. If you want to become a retail partner getting started is easy. Visit http://wholesale.wendellaugust.com today to submit a request for membership. We look forward to having you as part of the Wendell August family!
