Each of the new programs will be fulfilled by SED, including Samsung LCD and plasma TVs and DVD and Blu-ray players.
“As a new vendor partner, Samsung will create and enable NMG members to offer one of the leading brands in their marketplace that will also attract new shoppers to their stores,” said Mike Decker, Nationwide’s electronics marketing VP. “Through Direct Nationwide at SED, one of NMG’s strategic fulfillment partners, members can now order products from multiple power brands, such as Samsung, combined into one shipment and delivered within 48 hours.”
