Retail Product Submission Guidelines

Because we literally receive thousands of product submissions annually, we have established policies and procedures to help us operate efficiently and profitably.

Product Decisions

  • All products submitted will be reviewed on a monthly basis.  You can expect a reply via email or letter 6-8 weeks from receipt of your submission.
  • If your product is not selected, we are not able to give specific reasons as to why due to the volume of submissions we receive.  Please note that all products are reviewed by a buying committee and given equal consideration.
  • If your product is selected, you will be contacted by a buyer whom you will work with going forward. Please note that we do require the products we purchase to already have barcodes, UPC (for non-book items) or EAN (for books), and retail prices printed on each item or on a sticker affixed to each item. (National DVD, music, game, and gift merchandise suppliers may be exempted from this price requirement.)
