The Vendor Center™ Inc. Announces New Website Launch

The Vendor Center™ President, Darrell Wabschall, announced the launch of a new website, www.TheVendorCenterOnline.com, a secure business-to-business website that allows hardware retailers to access a wide range of vendor information including pricing, catalogs, educational and demonstration videos and order products online from participating vendors.

“Surprisingly, until now, nothing like this existed for retailers,” Wabschall said. “Plus for vendors, one website can potentially reach all 26,000 independently owned and operated hardware stores around the country.”

Three years in the making, the website is now operational and already connecting retailers and vendors. Retailers declare their primary wholesaler during registration; after receiving authorization retailers can view important confidential information specific to their affiliation.

“The Vendor Center™ will always be free for retailers, and until retail membership reaches 1,000 users we are waiving the setup and monthly subscription fees for the first 200 participating vendors” vice president Robert Michel said.

The Vendor Center does not receive commissions nor charge for any orders placed on the website.
