Melanie Grubaugh of Estes Park Lumber in Estes Park, Colo., has been coming to the Orgill market for 10 years. One display that caught her eye here for the distributor’s 2020 Spring Dealer Market is the enhanced Paint & Paint Sundries Showcase.
“I’m always wondering what new paint products I can bring to the store, so this is such a help. They should do this every year,” she said. “It’s very amazing that they did this.”
Paint played a prominent role here, along with impulse merchandising and dealer services.
Thousands of independent home improvement retailers gathered here to attend the Orgill Spring Dealer Market, which runs through Feb. 29. The Market covers nearly 1 million square feet of the Orange County Convention Center and draws retailers from across North America and around the world in search of deals, new products and Orgill services — all to help improve their businesses.
“Our Dealer Markets are designed to be a complete showcase of what Orgill and our vendor community can offer our customers,” says Boyden Moore, Orgill’s president and CEO. “Not only do we want to highlight the latest products and assortments they can bring into their stores, but we want the Dealer Market to be a place where dealers share ideas, find inspiration, competitive advantages, and learn how Orgill can best help them execute their vision.”
The Paint & Paint Sundries Showcase at the Market includes 18,000 square feet of paint and paint sundries products from top vendors like Valspar and Sherwin-Williams. Included in this showcase is Orgill’s enhanced Paint Works program. This program is designed to help retailers improve traffic, increase profitability, and help both pro and DIY-focused dealers become more of a paint destination.
