Vitamin Shoppe in search of new products at upcoming ECRM Innovation Summit
SECAUCUS, N.J. — The Vitamin Shoppe will be hosting a review for suppliers across several vitamin, mineral, supplement and sports nutrition categories on Oct. 17 here.
“As a leading specialty retailer in the health and wellness space, we are always looking for new and innovative products to help our customers nourish their bodies so they can thrive every day,” stated Doug Jones, chief merchandising officer at The Vitamin Shoppe. "We are very happy to partner with ECRM to organize this event and to the vendor partners who are providing innovative solutions that may inspire our customers to be their best selves.”
The session, which will be organized and managed by ECRM's Retail Solutions team, will include 10 Vitamin Shoppe category managers, who will schedule 20-minute meetings with suppliers, and will focus solely on new products, rather than a review of current business.
ECRM will be coordinating all aspects of the process including vendor sourcing, meeting scheduling, logistics and preparation on behalf of Vitamin Shoppe. There is a minimal fee of $500 per vendor company to attend, which includes meetings with appropriate buyers and exclusive Vitamin Shoppe webcast during which the retailer will outline its vision and strategy and prepare retailers for their meetings.
“As retailers continue to seek higher margins and enhance unique product offerings to enhance shopper loyalty, ECRM is happy to support Vitamin Shoppe in this important Innovation Summit program,” stated Wayne Bennett, SVP retail for ECRM.
