Hello KF Buyers.
After our first completed Co-Op and EARLY PAYBACK we feel that EllieO and Kickfurther make a fantastic team for continued growth and reward to our KF buyers.
For this Co-Op we are continuing a restock of our best-selling year round seersucker products along with adding in our entire Seersucker Collection. This collection is not new and has a proven sales track record of selling favorites year over year.
Due to our growth we have a demanding customer base in which we need to stock deeper stock levels for pre-written PO orders.
EllieO's has been a story of continued growth, year over year since our founding year in 2013 when we were a small basement business----and we are not slowing down. We've already manufactured the products for this co-op several times, including our best-selling Seersucker Scallop Shorts that show 3x growth from 2016 to 2017 year to date sales. Our Seersucker Shorts and coordinating tees boast the most sales and additions for our independent wholesale customers who are expanding their inventory offerings with us.
This co-op is going to support payment for production so we will have the deeper stock levels our retailers need to meet their re-order demands through the end of the 2018 fall/winter season.
This PO is already in production, arriving in just a few weeks. 20% of this PO is already pre-booked and written with customers with another buyer show on August 6-10.
The inventory will be produced by our supplier and will be shipped to the US and available for sale from our self-managed warehouse facility on August 6-15th, with stock arriving continously until October 10.
We have estimated 3 months of sales will be more than sufficient to complete this relatively small co-op. Keep in mind this co-op represents a very small portion of our revenue in the last 12 months.
Over the last five years, we have proven sales channels with our 500+ independent retailers. Our retailers include storefronts and multi-million dollar e-commerce websites.
