Distributors: It will emphasize a close relationship between the distributor and Bikery. This is very important because it is of great concern to a distributor for them to carry and feature a manufacturer who has delivery or warranty problems. Distributors are sensitive to the issue of availability of the product from the company. Bikery will work hard on convincing distributors that it will be able to meet all of the needs of the distributor, that production can be scaled quickly if necessary, and that Bikery is quick to fill orders, allowing the distributor not to have to keep a large inventory of the product out of fear of not being able to fulfill orders from a bicycle retailer.

Bikerys business practices and customer training emphasize the importance of exceeding the customers expectations. If this is done, profits will be surely guaranteed.
Implementation and Control:
Bikerys competitive edge is specializing in the closeout position. Presently, there are no wholesalers that are specializing to a large degree. Everyone carries a fairly wide range of products. It is a clear advantage to be focused and only concentrate a specific forte. By focusing on closeouts, retail shops can contact Bikery and always find products that offer nice margins, uncharacteristic of the bicycle industry.
The trend of the industry in general is of partnership. By offering value-added services such as closeout items which provide the retailer with better than average margins, Bikery is developing value that creates a steady influx of customers.
The sales strategy will be intertwined with the product offerings. It is of small value to have great closeouts if there is little demand. By having a well thought out product selection, Bikery will significantly increase the chances of turning a prospective customer into a sale. We will emphasize the popularity and quick turnover of the items that they stock and will shy away from items that may be a good deal but are a hard sell because they are likely to sit on the retailers shelf.
