Memphis, Tenn.-based Orgill's 2011 Spring Dealer Market kicked off Thursday with pallet specials and seminars, among other things.
The market floor included two concept stores to offer merchandising ideas to dealers: Beale Street Lumber and Delta Farm & Hardware.
"These stores showcase the range of what Orgill can provide to retailers of different shapes, sizes and formats," said Orgill CEO Ron Beal.
In his welcoming note to attendees, Beal also pointed to the deals available in the Coupon and Pallet Buy areas.
Among the 40 or so first-time exhibitors to the event are Ames Research Laboratory, EcoSmart Technologies and the L. Frances Caramel Co.
