Since we aren’t able to have a traditional tradeshow this year, we wanted to still get out as much info as possible from our vendors through our email list and website. We’ve talked to several of our friends throughout the industry and we’ll forward on what info they gave us.
The info here is designed to be shared with your customers. You can forward this on to anyone. We have other info including pricing, specials, etc., that is available via email once we’ve verified that you’re a legit customer. The easiest way to do that is to email us (email@example.com) your account number and a recent invoice number, they’re both shown on any of our invoices or statements. Once we have that, we can email you additional info that rink owners are going to be interested in.
Any dates in here are estimates. That’s true most of the time, but especially this year. Covid-19 has made forecasting demand tougher this year. It means that getting products made is tougher than normal. It has made finding boats and trucks to ship things tougher and also much more expensive. We’ve never seen anything like this, our inventory levels are the lowest they’ve ever been, we just can’t get skates in as quickly as we’d like. So take the dates any of the manufacturers are providing with a grain of salt, nobody really has a handle on this yet.
CHICAGO – Chicago doesn’t have any new products to report on, but they do have their traditional line up of 1900/400/800 skates, and they’ve been doing a pretty good job of keeping those available for us. We just received another good shipment, and as we type this up, our inventory here is better than it is for most of the other brands. So that’s a good thing to keep in mind.
CLEAN SKATE MACHINE – We’re offering a special through Oct 15 on the wheel washer machines. There is a video at https://www.facebook.com/97214809053/videos/10154086432519054 that you might want to check out if you’d like to learn more about the machines and how they work.
CSA CREDIT CARDS – We switched our credit card processing to CSA approximately two years ago. They had an endorsement from the RSA and we thought we would see if they could save us some money. They saved us a lot of money, they’re great to work with, and we haven’t looked back for a second. If you’d like to see if they could help your rink save money, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and ask him to get you details on how you can start saving money with each sale.
REBECCA’S – They put together a video with news about a sale on birthday party supplies, and we’ve also got more info for you if you are a verified customer (see below). But the video link is https://youtu.be/Jz-e-QC_knY and we hope you check it out.
ROLLER DERBY – Roller Derby is coming out with several new products this season. Tony Muse will be joining us for a Zoom Meeting to show off their new skates. We’ve got pictures and details of the new skates, info on the Zoom Meeting, click http://seskate.com/skate-show-roller-derby/for details.
SOUTHEASTERN SKATE – The last few months have been a whirlwind, to say the least. As we adapt to the Covid19 world, many items have sold out and manufacturers are struggling to keep up. We’ve got info on that, updates on many of the other products and services we provide, and more all available by clicking here.
TRUSTWORKZ – Trustworkz is a company that specializes in internet marketing, website creation, etc. They helped us update our www.seskate.com website to make it simpler and more mobile friendly. They put together a video for our customers which you can view at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1vGUKpnpiJQbBaBfDbHMZYZOM-dTeui62?usp=sharing
