Millions of Americans will be hitting the stores and keypads next Black Friday weekend, but none outside of retail will pay any heed to the distributors behind the curtain.
Among those ensuring that the cupboards stay filled for the long holiday weekend is D&H Distributing, the 98-year-old, family-run business out of Harrisburg, Pa. This season, the IT and CE distributor has amassed Black Friday discounts on more than a hundred products from manufacturers including Samsung, Dell, iHome, Microsoft, Seagate, Creative Labs, Aluratek, Drobo, Speck, Macally, LandingZone and others, with many deals beginning this week.
The promotion covers a broad range of products, including touchscreen notebooks, sound boards, peripherals, accessories, speakers, Bluetooth headsets, charging pads, adapters and digital picture frames, providing retail customers with a host of merchandise that can be bundled into greater Black Friday values and passed along to shoppers.
“As retailers and dealers gear-up for a competitive Black Friday, we’ve worked to develop the best deals possible with our top-notch manufacturers to help our customers attract consumers and grow margins in this critical season,” said D&H senior sales VP Jeff Davis. “We hope to help jump-start the holiday season for these dealers and retailers, leading them toward a successful year-end.”
Rebates range anywhere from $5 off iHome speakers that retail for $15, and more than $160 off a Drobo storage array, to 30 percent off Speck MacBook Air carrying cases and $250 off the Surface Book i5 mobile device. (The length and specifics of discounts vary by product and vendor, with different deals ending between Nov.28 and Dec. 2.)
Select deals are already in force, including from notebooks from Dell, Roku streaming TVs from TCL and digital voice trackers by Philips.
In addition, D&H is conducting a holiday promotion in which eligible customers can enter to win 10 $100 gift cards, four $250 gift cards or two $500 gift cards.
