NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday shopping season, Stadium Goods will be launching an exclusive engagement with eBay, one of the world's largest marketplaces. Through its newly launched eBay store, Stadium Goods (http://stores.ebay.com/stadiumgoods/) will offer eBay buyers with the most coveted sneakers and street wear apparel, expanding its reach beyond its online e-commerce and in-store brick-and-mortar presence. Additionally, as an authentic voice on sneaker culture, Stadium Goods' very own co-founder and CEO, John McPheters, will work with eBay to develop custom sneaker and street wear content exclusively for eBay.
"As a leader in the sneaker marketplace, we're thrilled to be partnering with eBay, the world's premiere destination for selling and buying. We believe together, eBay and Stadium Goods, will offer sneaker enthusiasts around the world the most premium omni-channel experience that consumers have long been asking for," says John McPheters.
Currently, sneaker resellers have only been able to sell their goods either through footwear marketplaces or brick-and-mortar e-commerce retailers. The engagement between Stadium Goods and eBay will offer resellers access to a larger audience, while Stadium Goods manages all of the back end buyer interaction, fulfillment and customer service functions. Sneaker sales will be updated across all channels in real time and new sneakers will be added daily.
"eBay is on the pulse of global fashion and culture – including sneaking culture - and we're continually looking to connect shoppers to the things they need and love," said Jill Ramsey, vice president Merchandising for Soft Goods at eBay. "eBay shoppers are continually visiting eBay to shop across a spectrum of price points and products – whether it's collectible sneakers or newly released shoes. With the new Stadium Goods store, we're excited to bring unique collection of sneakers and apparel to our global community of 159 million buyers."
This past fall, Stadium Goods ushered in the next generation of consumer retail with the unveiling of stadiumgoods.com, offering sneaker enthusiasts around the world the most premium, innovative and customer service-focused approach to buying and selling highly coveted footwear, apparel and lifestyle goods. Providing an unmatched level of customer service to the massive billion-dollar sneaker resale industry, Stadium Goods is the brainchild of co-founders John McPheters and Jed Stiller, who pulled from their e-commerce, venture capital and hospitality backgrounds to bring both buyers and sellers an impeccable online marketplace as well as a brick and mortar shop in the hotbed of Manhattan's retail scene. To date Stadium Goods is home to well over 15,000 pairs of the most highly desired sneakers.
Stadium Goods engagement with eBay marks the next phase of the expansion of the brand and the continuing commitment by Stadium Goods to the community of sneaker consumers. Customer service remains to be an integral part of the brands mission and Stadium Goods will continue to innovate and bring the market the best in retail technology for their consumers.
