Vietri, importer of tabletop goods from Italy, has launched a new program that is designed to help its independent specialty retailers online and in-store.
According to the tabletop company, it has agreed to offer its authorized retailers a credit of $150 towards future purchases by opening a free account with the e-commerce community Bridge. In addition to the credit, the company noted that authorized retailers will not be charged for its product syncing service.
Bridge’s Smart Brand, an e-commerce service, is designed to help independent retail stores show and sell 72,000 products from 118 home goods brands including Vietri, Juliska, Herend, Mariposa, Waterford and Beatriz Ball. Vietri now shares 2,311 products with more than 150 retailers via Bridge’s Smart Products service.
“Vietri is fully dedicated to our specialty stores. Bridge offers them an easy and comprehensive alternative to maintaining their own website. Given the current retail environment, it is crucial to have an online presence, and Bridge is making that possible for small specialty stores across the country” says Hali Vradelis, the company’s national sales director.
