The Grommet soft launches wholesale platform connecting retailers and Makers.
What: The Grommet, a product launch platform for innovative, undiscovered products announces a new wholesale portal to connect independent Makers with Main Street retailers, allowing them to stock their shelves with unique, distinctive Grommets. The entire process will be managed through a user-friendly portal serving as a one-stop shop to explore and purchase products that have been tested, vetted and validated by The Grommet.
Who: Small- to medium-sized main street retailers can now shop a curated and vetted collection of Grommets from independent Makers on The Grommet website and purchase at wholesale.
Why: This is a natural next step in The Grommet’s mission to support and level the playing field for small businesses empowering both Makers and retailers. In order to compete, independent retailers need information and access to distinctive products, while independent Makers need successful sales channels. The Grommet will facilitate these connections in a transparent, affordable and efficient way by connecting Grommet Makers to the growing number of like-minded retailers who follow The Grommet’s discoveries. The Grommet Wholesale is a critical bridge to give each party the ability to support one another and scale successfully.
When: The wholesale platform landing page will go live on Thursday, May 1st and allow retailers to apply to the program. The full site will go live in early summer 2014 and approved retailers will be able to make purchases at that time.
