Do it Best has announced its plan to continue its successful virtual market format for the co-op’s spring 2022 event. This market, featuring buying opportunities from the nation’s top vendors, will now be available online from Feb. 11–25.
“In our conversations with members, key vendors, and staff, we’ve been evaluating our spring market options in light of the business continuity disruptions, potential travel challenges, and health and safety issues driven by the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic,” says vice president of marketing Rich Lynch. “We don’t take this decision lightly, but with two successful virtual markets already under our belt and a well-received hybrid market last fall, the best option is to move our spring event exclusively online.”
The spring market will feature the popular Sneak Peek and Cyber Steals and introduce Core Solutions: The Ultimate Hardware Destination. The online event will also feature a business update from president and CEO Dan Starr, strategic buying presentations from Do it Best lumber, building materials, merchandising and marketing experts, as well as educational training sessions from industry veterans.
The next Do it Best Fall Market is scheduled for September 9–12 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
