Nationwide Announces Deals With CeXchange, Funai
Nationwide Marketing Group, at its PrimeTime show last week in Maryland, announced a new partnership with CeXchange to allow its dealers to offer electronics trade-in and recycling to their customers. Scott Nordhaus, that company's CEO, discussed the program in a video posted on our site earlier this week.
“It is illegal in most states to throw away electronics into waste,” Nordhaus said as part of the announcement. “This program gives consumers a legal and easy way to get rid of unwanted products at no cost to the dealer since we pay for shipping and make sure that the products are recycled responsibly.”
Also at PrimeTime, Nationwide announced a program with Funai Corp. in which members of the group will be offered "good, better and best" strategies on Funai's CE products, which include the Philips, Magnavox and Sylvania brands.
"This exclusive Nationwide program allows the independent dealer to enjoy the benefits of a factory direct relationship, while buying in quantities appropriate for their business," Nationwide vice president of electronics merchandising Doug Schatz said as part of the announcement. "The ability to source three strong brands from one vendor makes this program even more compelling.”
