i nova was already working in the Canadian retail sales market via its distributor of desk pads, the Greenside Group, located in Toronto, Canada. This time, i nova will call upon agents in different provinces to represent their product to pharmacies, grocery stores, golf shops, health centers, sports and outdoor specialty boutiques to name a few of the possible outlets. In Quebec, Mancini & Ass. has already been confirmed and negotiation are being finalized in Ontario and British Columbia.
Already quite popular in Europe, these bracelets have yet to make a big entry in the North American retail market but judging from first reactions, i nova expects the sales to be important from the get go. The reaction in the promotional industry certainly didn’t take long. As i nova sent an e-mail to their distributors worldwide announcing the re-launch of their completely revisited and upgraded website (i-novapromo.com)
The Zanzifree© bracelets for promotional use will be branded through hot stamping which will be done in Montreal, Canada for the North American market. As of yet, no partner has been found in Europe to brand these items but I nova is looking, once again, to work with a Spanish manufacturer as it is easier for them to concentrate all their manufacturing efforts in the same country.
Bracelets will be available next month, in June, for both retail and promotional use. Sales will be handled by the head office in Montreal, Canada via their respective distribution channels.
