The efforts by Quality Bicycle Product to expand its business in Canada have delivered positive results for the company and its industry partners. Since opening distribution centers in Vancouver and Toronto last January, QBP has added 25 key brands to those centers while increasing its number of Canadian retail partners by 20%. With reliable inventory of an increasing number of brands, retail partners are benefiting from QBP’s just-in-time business strategy.
“Doing business with QBP has been an easy choice,” said Helly Butera, sales advisor and mechanic at Sidesaddle Bicycle Shop in Vancouver, “They have wide and deep of selection from great brands, solid inventory, and we haven’t experienced a single error. We get things as quickly as possible and just when we need them, whether it’s bikes or parts and accessories.”
Canadian retailers can rely on one- or two-day ground shipping from the Canadian distribution centers to most locations, with orders shipped within 24 hours. With free shipping on parts and accessory orders of $300 or more, and on qualifying Dealer’s Choice orders, retailers can leverage extra value from the brands stocked in Canada. Plus, Canadian retailers can choose from hundreds of additional brands shipped from QBP’s US distribution centers.
“We’re thrilled with the growth we’ve experienced this past year in Canada, and we appreciate the great support we’ve gotten from retail partners like Sidesaddle,” said Rich Tauer, President of QBP. “There are more great opportunities to come as we continue to expand our services and brands available to Canadian retailers.”
