Fort Worth, Texas – Trans World Entertainment, parent of the f.y.e. and Suncoast music and movie chains, has joined the Progressive Retailers Organization (PRO Group), effective today.

Trans World’s more than 350 combined stores also carry CE, video games and related products in addition to prerecorded music and video.

Dave Workman, president/COO of PRO Group and BrandSource’s ProSource division, noted that Trans World is an important addition to the buying group as it seeks to diversify its core A/V business with new growth categories.

“With many of the legacy CE categories predicted to see continued dollar declines in the future, our efforts have been to offset these losses with continued growth in traditional home audio products and emerging audio categories,” he said.

In a statement, Mike Manske, Trans World’s senior merchandising VP, said “We look forward to our involvement with PRO Group.”
