Kole Imports Ramps Up “The $5 Store” Model For Wholesalers and Retailers

25 years ago when dollar store mania swept the nation Kole Imports quickly met the rising demand and supplied quality $1-retail-price general merchandise, along with substantial profits, to their customers.  Fast forwarding to the present day, with major industry changes on the horizon, and you will see that Kole Imports is leading the charge in the industry’s evolution with a new, exciting and profitable solution.  

With constantly increasing overhead and ever-decreasing profit margins, the general merchandise industry is hurting and in serious need of a profit-boosting idea.  Kole Imports has introduced a new program to help retail stores boost sales and increase profits with Kole Imports’ $5 Retail Solution.

Adding a $5 retail section to a retail store requires zero overhead zero added expense.  The $5 retail items are bigger, higher-value items than $1 retail items, offering customers more choices and improving their shopping experience while boosting profits for the retailer as well. The movement towards great value items at new price points is where the general merchandise industry is heading, and Kole Imports is committed to helping retailers adopt this model right now.

Kole Imports is so confident about this new idea that they have dedicated 2 entire booths at ASD Las Vegas August 4-7, 2013 (SU1000) for the sole purpose of offering unbelievable specials to customers willing to buy into the $5 solution.   With more than 200 items across a wide variety of product categories and all at the $5 retail price point, Kole has crafted the perfect solution to combat declining industry trends.  Retailers will quickly realize that this is the perfect opportunity to build on their existing business, and boost profits.
