Special Markets Manufacturers Meeting
This month, Andy Dixon and Sharon Rivera from the BBI Special Markets team successfully completed a two-and-a-half-day vendor review representing over 30 lines to Shopko. Twelve manufacturers attended the offsite meeting and enjoyed lunch and dinner events with the buyers. The initial feedback from the meetings looks to include 50+ new item (authorizations from existing lines and at least four new manufacturers being added). The meetings were highlighted by a few attendees having their first ever Wisconsin cheese curds!
