We at HTI Buying Group are very excited to be launching our blog and we are glad you are taking the time to check us out! For our first blog post, we wanted to give everyone a little more information on who we are, what you will see, and how you can get involved!
Who we are.
The Housewares Training & Information Group, known as HTI Buying Group, offers independent kitchenware and tabletop specialty retailers the benefits that, until now, have only been available to category killer outlets, mass merchants, and department stores - the opportunity to buy products and programs from member vendors on a corporate discount plan.
HTI brings together affiliated members to provide access to training, information and resources to improve sales and increase profits while maintaining their autonomy and independence.
You will see content from:
· KC Lapiana – President
· Karen Skalicky- VP of Member Sales
· Robert McGinnis- Customer Service & Member Sales
· Guest Post – Industry Insiders, Vendors, and More
Why we are blogging.
Keeping our members connected is one of our highest priorities! We want to provide as much housewares industry specific information as we can.
We want to make new friends in the industry, strengthen current relationships, and create a member network that is beneficial to everyone!
