BrandSource has expanded its alliance with LG Electronics USA to offer members

The LG appliance
distribution agreement builds on a successful long-term relationship under
which LG home entertainment products have been available to BrandSource members
for six years. Adding LG appliances to the roster allows members to offer
customers a full assortment of LG-branded products, the buying group said.
"Our goal is
always to support our members and help them be more successful. And LG
appliances, among the highest-rated and most desirable in the U.S. market, are
a great fit for our group," said BrandSource CEO Bob Lawrence. "The strength of
the LG brand and their terrific product lineup will help independent regional
dealers draw more consumers into their stores."
John Riddle, home
appliance regional sales VP, LG Electronics USA, said, "We're enthusiastic
about expanding our relationship with BrandSource to bring LG's innovative and
stylish line of premium appliances to the BrandSource members. Many members
already carry LG home entertainment products, and adding major appliances is a
natural connection to leverage the strength of LG in BrandSource retail stores."
the BrandSource national convention later this month in Las Vegas will be able
to experience the new lineup at the LG Appliances product showcase. To help
generate customer awareness, LG Appliances will also be highlighted at BrandSource.com
and on the BrandSource mobile app, the group said.
