PRESIDENT’S UPDATE AUGUST & SEPTEMBER 2021
IT’S TRADE SHOW TIME!
Auburn’s Virtual Trade Show is here again! This year the Trade Show is taking place in August and September, which is a bit later than in years past. As with our prior Trade Shows, we have been working diligently to secure discounts from our suppliers so that we can pass those savings along to you. The manufacturers have been eager to partner with Auburn in order to make their products even more attractive.
As before, Auburn will be featuring different suppliers each week, with no repeats, on hundreds of items and offering discounts of 10-30%! Covid created market disruptions this past year along with changing regulations which have required us all to remain flexible. Fortunately, those disruptions seem to be tapering off and our suppliers have worked diligently to secure the necessary components for their products. They have increased their stock on hand, as well as the essential elements needed for production, and when necessary have established alternate shipping methods. As a result, supply has mostly stabilized, and transit times have normalized. Auburn continues to work to maintain enough inventory to try to buffer any market irregularities so that our customers aren’t affected. Additionally, our buyers work to source alternative suppliers if an item is experiencing a shortage.
The world is opening up again and we have fun freebies to take along on your adventures! Sunglasses, Double Zip accessory bags, Portable Cutlery Sets, Headlamps, Flash Travel Kits, Stainless straw kits, no show socks, TSA approved clear carry-on bags and many more items will make their way into your orders in August and September. And the Detroit Popcorn give-way has returned! On Wednesdays, online orders with a Trade Show item will qualify for DOUBLE REWARDS. And every Friday, online orders of $500 and more, including a Trade Show item, will qualify for an entry into the drawing to win an Oculus! Of course, there is a limit to one entry per customer per day and items are available while supplies last and may be substituted. Stay in touch with your Auburn Account Manager to find out details on the specials and what the give-away will be for any given day.
