AVAD is relocating its Dallas branch on March 29, 2010. A “store within a store,” the new Dallas branch will be located inside the Ingram Micro (AVAD’s parent company) Carrollton facility, located just eight miles for the existing location.
This move was based on an analysis of the effectiveness of the existing branch locations, and, with the exception of a new address, dealers can expect the same level of support and features of all AVAD branches—including AVAD Experience Centers, showrooms and a fully-stocked warehouse.
The new location will offer area dealers the same AVAD features from at the previous facility, including access to AVAD Experience Centers, a dedicated home theater and showroom, training facilities, a will-call area and a fully stocked warehouse.
“The relocation of the AVAD Dallas branch illustrates how the support of our parent company, Ingram Micro, can benefit AVAD and its dealers,” AVAD vice president and general manager Jim Annes said. “AVAD continuously evaluates the effectiveness of each of its facilities both financially and in terms of productivity. While our current Dallas facility has served the needs of area dealers for some time, we feel it does not meet the needs of AVAD’s long-term strategy for dealer support. The implementation of this ‘store within a store’ concept not only saves significant revenue but gives AVAD a virtual unlimited opportunity to grow within this facility as we expand into new markets such as commercial AV, security and digital signage.”
