SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VSI Products, a conglomerate of great cycling brands, has announced the launch of not one, but seven branded online stores. This feat was accomplished through VSI's partnership with Shopatron, allowing riders anywhere to buy all of VSI's products online, at their convenience, and pick them up at their local shop.
VSI builds products for established cycling brands, including Intense BMX, THE, Sinz, Speedco, Vigor, EYE and ITS. The Shopatron eCommerce platform gives VSI the ability to sell all of its products directly to online shoppers in the U.S., and then assign the orders to local bike shops for delivery to the customer.
"This partnership with Shopatron opens a new sales channel for VSI and all seven of our brands," said Gregorio De Haro, VSI Products COO. "It not only allows us to sell to new consumers online, but also support and reward the retailers that already stock our products."
VSI's seven brands join almost 50 cycling brands already deployed on the Shopatron platform including Specialized, Cane Creek and Ritchey. These brands pass orders to about 2,000 local bike shops around the world.
"For companies like VSI Products, with multiple brands in their portfolio, having a full-service, world-class eCommerce solution makes it easier for them to get their products into the hands of consumers," said Ed Stevens, Shopatron founder and CEO. "And in the bicycle industry, where most sales come through local bike shops, incorporating those shops in your eCommerce strategy not only makes sense, it increases overall sales."
