NEW INDOOR TANNING DISTRIBUTOR FOR VBG MEMBERS…FOUR SEASONS
By Ted Engen
Due to Suntan Supply no longer distributing New Sunshine products, we have been forced to select a new distributor for our Video/Indoor Tanning retailers. The selection process and negotiation for a new indoor tanning distributor has been completed. We have selected Four Seasons, headquartered in Paris, TN, as the distributor of choice for VBG retailers involved in the indoor tanning industry. Also, due to their very diverse offering of products and services, video retailers will also find benefits using this new distributor.
Four Seasons is the largest tanning distributor in the industry. Their customer service is second to none and they are committed to supporting their salon owners in a variety of ways, to include education and training for owners and employees and usually at no cost for their customers.
It is important to note that some of our VBG video/tanning retailers have utilized Four Seasons in the past or more recently to acquire New Sunshine products as they were unable to purchase them from Suntan Supply. Without exception, everyone that we talked with gave Four Seasons high marks for service, product availability and more.
New Sunshine, who manufacturers the top lotion lines in the tanning industry, has assured Video Buyers Group that they will continue to support us, as they have in the past. Also they will be able to enhance a number of specials, free goods offerings and marketing support due to their strong relationship with Four Seasons.
We have been asked not to publish the discounts off of salon pricing at this time, but we are assured it is the absolute best for independent salons and includes all lotion lines, accessories, cleaners, etc. For questions concerning the discounts you will be entitled to as a VBG retailer involved in indoor tanning, please call Donna Evans at 800.325.2769 ext. 2103. Donna will be our VBG representative to assist our members in getting accounts set up, explaining the benefits to include discounts, and more. If you already have an account with Four Seasons, you will still need to contact Donna so your account can be identified as a VBG member entitled to receive all the benefits being offered, which will include new larger discounts, all of which can be accessed by phone or on line.
For over 30 years Video Buyers Group has been able to negotiate agreements, develop new programs and benefits that truly can help our retailers be more profitable. Dealing with issues that affect our segment of the industry and finding new ways of doing business are all possible because of our retailer’s support. Once again we can assure everyone involved in indoor tanning that every dollar you spend with Four Seasons is a tool we can use for the benefit of all members.
If involved in indoor tanning, please give Four Seasons your highest consideration as your new distributor for all your tanning supplies.
HELLO FROM JERRY DEVENEY!
About 20 years ago we exhibited our tanning equipment, lotions and accessories at the Video Show in Las Vegas – and almost everyone there thought we were crazy. Almost everyone.
There were a few forward thinkers in the crowd – including a guy from Coon Rapids, Minnesota – who shared our unique vision for sales, marketing and product line diversification.
That’s where Ted Engen and I met – and where he first introduced me to the Video Buyers Group. 20 years and millions and millions of dollars in sales later – we both can look back with fond memories of having helped thousands of video store owners to expand their horizons and profit potential.
Today, myself along with everyone at Four Seasons Sales & Service, are elated to be part of the VBG!
Four Seasons is the industry’s largest distributor of tanning lotions, lamps, accessories and equipment. We also offer an extensive line of health, wellness, skin care, beauty and weight-loss products.
We invite you to visit our website: www.fstanning.com – to preview all that Four Seasons has to offer – including 24/7 on line ordering and order tracking.
We also want to offer each member of the VBG, a Free General Listing on our business locator website: www.mysunfunfitness.com.
Here customers can locate and preview your business – and also enter promotions for a chance to Win Cash to spend at your business!
If you have any questions please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 731-641-2343.
