Orgill holds fall market in Las Vegas
The three-day event was focused on areas like worldwide sourcing, builders hardware, rental, agricultural and sporting goods, bagged goods, hand tools, heating and cooling, housewares, kitchen and bath, lawn and garden, paint and sundries and lock services.
The event included a "worldwide sourcing" display with more than 400 new products on display, including high-end work clothes, space heaters, patio furniture, cast iron cookware and gift items.
"Although it is not a departure from normal, we're really focusing our efforts on improving the scope and range of marketing and merchandising programs and products available to the home improvement entrepreneur," said Orgill president and CEO Ron Beal.
Other market highlights, according to Beal, included a completely revamped plumbing category and an expanded Pro Source department incorporating a broader range of construction supplies, safety equipment and rental options.
“Our worldwide sourcing selections continue to expand, as does the new Farm and Ranch area introduced earlier this year,” Beal added. “The very popular pallet buys have been expanded and strengthened, and several new vendors will be exhibiting for the first time.”
The Orgill market ran through Aug. 18.
