Newark, DE – -(Ammoland.com)- Sports South LLC and its national dealer network provide a secure distribution channel for firearms offered on GunTV, as well as top notch customer service, getting the right product to the right customer through its dealers, on time.
That’s important to us at GunTV and not just from a high bar customer service level. The volume of product that can potentially be sold through the GunTV Live Shopping format requires a well oiled operation. Sports South’s inventory, warehouse and distribution operation gives GunTV the platform it needs for the high sales volume we expect to generate.
GunTV, the revolutionary new live television shopping network launching in 2015, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with one of the largest firearm and related consumer goods distributors in the United States. Sports South LLC, based in Shreveport, Louisiana with direct access to over 475 manufacturer product lines and outdoor sporting goods, will utilize its vast dealer network and automated warehouse facility to distribute products featured on GunTV, the first live on air transactional firearms, munitions and related consumer goods sales network in the world.
Under the terms of the agreement, Sports South LLC will be the exclusive distributor of firearms through its Federal Firearms License (FFL) dealer network throughout the U.S. Sports South will also distribute firearms accessories and other outdoor sporting goods on a non-exclusive basis.
“The team at GunTV has an extensive background in television shopping networks, a well-established method of reaching consumers that has been absent from the shooting sports industry. Sports South is delighted to help GunTV bring this innovative concept to our industry and our strong network of retail dealers. We believe this platform has great potential to generate excitement and sales while sending the right message to a broader audience.” said Tripper Dickson, President of Sports South LLC
“We are very excited to enter into this agreement with Sports South, who has a long history as a successful pioneer in the distribution of firearms and outdoor sporting goods. Our successful relation- ship with Sports South will ensure extensive market access and provide more opportunities for access to the firearms sold on GunTV at the dealer level. Moreover, Sports South and its national dealer network provide a secure distribution channel for firearms offered on GunTV, as well as top notch customer service getting the right product to the right customer through its dealers, on time.”
