PHILADELPHIA -- Pep Boys has announced it will hold a two-day “Open to Buy” event in July.
The company invites both current and new merchandise suppliers to its headquarters in Philadelphia to present innovative, groundbreaking products for on-the-spot buying consideration.
Interested suppliers can register for a 20-minute appointment to present new products or product lines to Pep Boys’ category managers. (Note: This is supplemental to existing category line reviews.)
Appointments will be available on Wednesday, July 13 and Thursday, July 14 between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. and 1 and 4 p.m. at Pep Boys’ corporate headquarters (3111 W. Allegheny Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132)
Visit http://www.mannymoeandjack.com/opentobuy.htm to complete a registration form. No calls are to be placed directly to the category management team to request an appointment.
Suppliers and potential suppliers should be prepared with documented facts and market and sales data about their product(s), as well as a good case for why their product(s) serve the needs of Pep Boys’ customers. The presentation will need to be concise, as appointments are brief.
Pep Boys confirms that it will make order commitments on both days.
Suppliers are limited to bringing no more than two or three attendees to present their product(s). Samples can be presented during the appointment; none are to be sent in advance.
