The Do it Best fall Open Buying Day has been set for Nov. 1 and will continue to expand the variety of products it offers to its member-owners from domestic and international vendors. Open Buying Day will be held at Do it Best world headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Qualified vendors will meet with the merchandising team to present their company and products, as well as learn about the requirements to become a Do it Best vendor.
“Vendors who participate in Open Buying Day have the opportunity to quickly get their products in front of thousands of independent business owners around the world through our extensive distribution network,” says incoming vice president of merchandising Jason Stofleth. “Discovering new vendors and innovative products plays an important role in further enhancing our members’ growth. We support our newest vendors with featured placement at our semi-annual buying markets. We’re strongly committed to delivering solutions-oriented products for our store owners, and Open Buying Day continues to deliver outstanding results.”
Vendors interested in participating should visit doitbestonline.com/become-a-vendor to complete the registration questionnaire. Participation includes a required $200 nonrefundable donation to the Do it Best Foundation.
Do it Best recently had strong attendance at its 2022 Fall Buying Market in Indianapolis, with retailers returning for the co-op’s first in-person buying event since last fall. The focus of the event was product discovery and exploring new solutions the wholesaler offers.
