This Friday, vendors can set up booths showcasing their products at the Clark branded store.
Clark Brands LLC has announced that Schoon’s Pump ‘N Pak, a Clark branded store, in Brookings, S.D., is conducting a vendor appreciation day on Friday, Sept. 23.
Schoon’s is expecting more than 15 vendors ranging from local dairy, meat and cheese suppliers to energy drink, tobacco, soft drink and alcohol vendors. The store is allowing each vendor to have a booth showcasing new products, as well as offering special discounted pricing for the retail customers. Schoon’s is also having fresh barbeque prime rib for its customers and a live radio broadcast.
“This is a wonderful way to involve the local community— both customers and vendors,” said Karl Goodhouse, president and CEO of Clark Brands. “We think this is an innovative way to increase retail business while allowing the local vendors to showcase new products.”
“We are excited to reward both our customers and our vendors. Allowing the vendors to showcase their products has increased our vendor participation level,” said Dan Bauer, general manager of Schoon’s. “We appreciate the relationships we’ve built with our vendors over the years and we’re always looking for new ways to increase profitability for our vendors.”
Schoon’s Pump ‘N Pak is supplied by Harms Oil Co., a Clark Brands licensee, also located in Brookings.
