Nationwide Marketing Group and AcceptanceNOW Debut New Program

9/11/2017 01:00:00 PM

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Nationwide Marketing Group, the independent buying and marketing powerhouse, and AcceptanceNOW, a nationwide pioneer in the operation of rent-to-own kiosks within third-party retail outlets, are excited to announce a new program for select Nationwide Members. 

The initial phase of the new program will offer ANOW’s no-credit-needed, rent-to-own, staffed kiosks in select large, independent retail locations, and will provide advantageous go-to-market strategies for Nationwide’s participating select Members. 

“AcceptanceNOW offers a great benefit to our Membership with the added service provided by having a dedicated representative in the Member’s store, easing the sales and processing time and personnel needed to provide customers with a great lease-to-own experience,” said Chris Kirk, a key leader in Nationwide’s Financial Service Program.  “Combine the time the dealer saves in processing the sale, and add in the return visits by clients making payments, and AcceptanceNOW is a great partner for any large independent retailer.” 

Longtime partners, Nationwide and ANOW foresee the program will increase the number of independent Member retailers using the kiosks and eventually increasing overall sales. 

“Nationwide Marketing Group is one of the premier buying entities supporting many of the top retailers today,” said Steve McKinley, Vice President of Sales, Client Relations for AcceptanceNOW. “We are thrilled to have forged a strategic program with Nationwide that focuses on the customer experience which creates incremental revenue for the Nationwide retail member. To build upon our strong relationship with Nationwide fits perfectly into our long-term strategy, and we look forward to working closely with Chris Kirk and the strong retailers at Nationwide Marketing Group.”
