Isn’t it time to think outside the big box and start thinking inside, about your community?
Your local dealer powered by EPIC Business Essentials provides you with everything the big box retailers can, with added benefits:
- You’re not a number to us; you are a valuable customer that we will go above and beyond for every day.
- The dollars you spend with a local independent dealer truly stay in your community through tax dollars, services, community involvement and much more!
- We are agile and can meet all of your needs – from specific delivery instructions to billing – we can make it happen on the turn of a dime.
The Whole Truth about Buying Local
I keep my spend local by buying from the big box retail store.
While some of the money you spend stays local, most of that spend makes its way back to the big box headquarters in a state other than yours. Research has proven that utilizing local, community based organizations allows approximately 85% of your spend to remain and circulate within, and support your local economy.
A local dealer can’t compete on price.
EPIC Business Essentials dealers are part of a powerful multi-billion dollar national cooperative allowing access to a full and complete line of business productivity products at extremely competitive prices. We don’t play price games – the price you see on line is the price you pay which makes it easier to budget and/or audit.
A local dealer will not have the products I need.
Our local dealers have access to tens of thousands of items via our wholesaler and manufacturer direct relationships that you need every day to run your business. Our independent dealers are agile enough to find those “one of a kind” and “hard to locate” products you may need for a special project. Local dealer service is customized to fit the specific needs of your organization, department or end-user.
A local dealer won’t be able to meet my delivery expectations.
White glove service is our specialty. We get to know you as a valued customer and guarantee that we meet your needs and expectations when it comes to delivery and customer service. With us, you aren’t just another account, you are a marquis account and we will treat you that way.
I sometimes need to run out and grab an item I need right away.
We've got you covered! Call or stop by a dealership and they can help meet your urgent needs. If what you need is something that is in stock we will do what we can to get you that item same day – and in some cases, if it is an item we don’t stock, we will do what we can to find it for you and bring it directly to you!
