Paul Marsh and I traveled to Las Vegas recently to take in the 2017 SHOT Show. This industry conglomeration is held each January where the industry comes together to add products, training, and information. While the sheer size was at first overwhelming, I was there to meet with new vendors and see new products. I know from my 30 year plus retailing years that, “In order to sell right, you have to buy right.”
Paul Marsh and I identified 10 new vendors and over 100 new products we think Simmons customers might like to see on our web site. We hope to cull these numbers down to the best of the best new products and offer them right here on this web site. We are also discussing how to improve our process and get both new and used guns, “out the door” faster…….but with the same great reliability that people have come to expect at Simmons.
We met quite a few interesting characters and vendors with vast amounts of experience who were very helpful. It is my hope, that each of you finds something that interests you on this site, whether it be content or a product.
Business today is about buying right, an efficient business model, and more than ever “taking care of the customer.” We will be focusing on all three of these things at Simmons for……………well, forever.
