Orbea Officially Authorizes “Killer Deals” on Previous Years’ Bikes
PRESS RELEASE: Orbea USA has updated the Specials and Incentives module to its website as it continues to explore innovative ways to deal with new old stock (NOS) merchandise.
Our module features NOS inventory with reduced retail pricing for consumers to view. Using a simple discount structure and user interface. Items must be outside of the current catalog by six months to be available for the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Specials and IncentivesÃ¢â‚¬Â module, so as to never compete with current inventory on the dealerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s floor.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“All sales are handled only through authorized Orbea USA retailers and receive the same dealer service and warranty as current range product,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Ronnie Points, Orbea USAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s national sales manager. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Additionally, this program helps online shoppers find great deals while receiving all the service benefits of their local Orbea dealership.”
Colors and sizes are extremely limited, and many items have stock levels of only 1 or 2. However, the deals are good. A customer can find the companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s remaining 2009, 2008, 2007 and older framesets and bikes in the Road, MTB and Multisport categories. Any frameset purchased can be assembled using OrbeaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Made to OrderÃ¢â‚¬Â process, making it a complete bicycle. See dealer or contact Orbea USA for further details at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our goal was to create an innovative online tool for Orbea USA dealers to sell and consumers to find deals on NOS at reduced retail pricing,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tony Karklins, OrbeaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s managing director. Ã¢â‚¬Å“NOS inventory is a challenge for all bicycle companies, as our industry thrives on new product introductions each fall. As a result, last yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s inventory becomes a challenge for sales but a wonderful resource for consumers.”
