As a growing, evolving company, Ducati is always looking for innovative ways to market our brand
San Luis Obispo, CA (Vocus) December 8, 2009 –-
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Shopatron has partnered with Ducati to launch its North American Online Ducati Performance Apparel and Accessories Store. The Shopatron-powered online store includes the full line of 2010 apparel, as well as Ducati Performance accessories.
Shoppers are now able to place orders for apparel and accessories at the Ducati online store. Orders placed in the online store are then fulfilled by local Ducati retailers. Ducati's existing network of retailers and dealers will be able to service these orders with products they already have in inventory.
"As a growing, evolving company, Ducati is always looking for innovative ways to market our brand,” said John Paolo Canton, Spokesman for Ducati. “We can use Shopatron to reach more customers online without competing with our valued retail partners. In fact, we are now better supporting our retail channel by sending closed sales to these retail partners.”
“We are excited to add Ducati to the Shopatron network,” said Ed Stevens, founder and CEO of Shopatron. “Ducati is a well-respected brand in the powersports industry. Our large network of powersports retailers is eager to stock more Ducati product to fulfill these online orders.”
With its new online store, Ducati joins over 32 power sports manufacturers and over 700 brands that work with Shopatron for online order fulfillment across North America.
