Do it Best boosts cleaning category

Cleaning supplies and storage have become a separate category with their own dedicated buyer at Do it Best Corp., the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based co-op. Amanda Harmeyer, the organization’s former associate merchandise manager for housewares, has been promoted to merchandise manager for Cleaning Supplies and Storage, a newly created position.

A five-year veteran of Do it Best, Harmeyer previously worked in merchandising for two international retailers. 

“This category is an important and promising area of growth for our members, which is why we’ve invested in this new position on our merchandising team,” said Steve Markley, VP merchandising for Do it Best.

With annual sales of $2.68 billion, Do it Best Corp. serves more than 4,000 member-owned locations in the United States and in 53 foreign countries.
