Capitol has reached an agreement with the Nationwide Marketing Group, positioning Capitol as one of the group’s CE distribution partners.
Nationwide Marketing Group works beside thousands of appliance, furniture, electronics, specialty electronics, custom installation, and rent-to-own dealers helping them grow their businesses and their bottom lines. With greater than 3,800 members operating more than 11,000 storefronts and $15 billion in combined annual sales, Nationwide is North America’s largest buying and marketing organization.
Under the terms of the agreement, Nationwide’s members now have access to thousands of consumer electronics products offered by Capitol’s vendors. Included are audio, video, and networking products from such market leaders as LG, Philips, URC, and Core Brands, including Niles, Panamax, Xantech, and Sunfire.
“The sum total of Nationwide’s member base is huge by any standard, but on their own these dealers don’t always have access to the brands and products they need to grow their business,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president and CFO. “Capitol is in a position to change all that, with a deep and diverse selection that represents the best of current technologies that are only growing in importance to dealers at every level.”
“Capitol’s vendor relationships combined with its unshakable commitment to customer service makes it one of the best possible partners for Nationwide members,” said Tom Hickman, senior vice president, Nationwide Marketing Group. “Nationwide is focused on helping our dealers increase their profitability, and with Capitol’s extensive catalog, I have no doubt that our members will enjoy some of their greatest business successes to date.”
Industry veterans, heading Nationwide’s seven regional divisions, work to provide independent dealers with personalized service and local programming in every market they serve. More information is available at www.nationwidegroup.org.
