Spring 2018 Hardlines Strategies


Be The MVP! Make the play of the game for your business at the new Most Valuable Profits (MVP) Night at the Blish-Mize Spring Buying Market. This event will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 22, and will include special buys, early market access and new market terms for all customers who attend. It’s a way for Blish-Mize to say “thank you” to their customers for their business, as well as offer them an exclusive opportunity to start off the Market weekend with some great deals! Attendees can also enjoy food, drinks and music as they take a look at the different deals available. You can’t afford to miss this! Show Stoppers Show Stoppers will include 12 individual items with hot Thursday-night-only pricing. Cash in with Show Stopper Cash Spiffs, which will be available from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Purchase any six of the Show Stopper items to earn an additional $50 cash spiff

(as long as minimum quantities are met). Orders must be placed at the Blish-Mize spiff booth, and only one order/spiff per retail location will be accepted. Show Stopper orders must be placed during MVP Night hours. Cash Discounts Save even more money on your orders! Not only will you receive big discounts at the Blish-Mize market, add to your savings with a new 4 percent cash discount on warehouse orders during the qualifying market period. MVP Night warehouse purchases also qualify for a 4 percent cash discount. Order terms will be 4 percent 10th prox plus 60 days.

The new lines offer the same promise all Hardware House items do: high-quality craftsmanship at a great price. They will come in a variety of styles, and each Hardware House item is covered by the Blish-Mize manufacturer’s warranty. Stop by the Hardware House booth to get a good look at the vanities and other offerings from the line, and to enter your name in the drawing for a Hardware House ceiling fan. Learn more about Hardware House’s offerings on Page 40. All in the Palm of Your Hand You’ve booked your hotel, packed your bags and registered for your SmartBook. Now, it’s time to download the app that puts the information you need in one place—right in the palm of your hand. The Blish-Mize Markets app is a new tool that allows attendees to access venue information, a schedule of events

and more during their time at the show. It’s free and easy to download and available for Apple and Android devices. Visit the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to get started. “This technology takes our Buying Markets to the next level,” says Jason Drury, marketing director for Blish-Mize, “and can make the customer experience that much easier.” He says the Blish-Mize team developed the app with Bravura Technologies and George Fern Company after months of research and planning. “This is the best technology to organize and strategize your Market experience. With the app, everything’s right there in one place, making it easy to find whatever you need.” The app will help the Blish-Mize team, too. When you arrive, the Registration Desk will scan a QR code on your packet, letting your sales rep know you have arrived.

The Blish-MizeMarkets app provides an easyway to keep all of your Market information in one place.
