An Update For Gerson Customers, Spring/Summer 2013 Season

Dear Valued Customer:

We invite you to “Experience The Buzz” surrounding The Gerson Companies and all of the great product lines we offer.

As we introduce our Gerson International Spring/Summer 2013 product offering, the Buzz has already started. Kevin Day and the rest of our Gerson International team have outdone themselves yet again. The new line has over 2,000 items with over 1,500 new items for next spring and summer. We have added many new categories and expanded existing categories. Once again we are offering 70+ Hot Buys at incredibly low prices to celebrate our 70th year anniversary of being in business! The pricing on our new line is as sharp as it has ever been.

Additionally, we have inventory available on approximately 300 items from our fantastic fall/Halloween/Christmas 2012 seasonal line. Please call your sales rep or our customer service department to find out more information about the items we have available. We have these items on display in our showrooms. Quantities are limited so act now!

Gerson continues to be the leader in LED flameless candles, LED lighted branches and our LED light strings. Our Everlasting Glow branded line continues to innovate with new products, styles, colors, and technology. Come see our newest addition of solar powered LED candles in stylish indoor/outdoor lanterns.

The GG Collection introduces a number of new items to its product offering in kitchen, bath, desk accessories, and now outdoor garden and patio items. The product offering, styling, and quality are unsurpassed in the market.

The Lone Elm Studios line offers almost 50 new items to the collection of everyday gift items. Lone Elm Studios continues to innovate with gift items appealing to a wide range of retailers across the U.S., all at prices targeted to generate retail sales and margin.

As we approach this new season, we once again want to thank you for your continued business and support. We are very excited for this new season and cannot wait for you to see all of our new product offerings. We look forward to seeing you in our Olathe, KS showroom or in our beautiful showroom in Atlanta’s Americas Mart (Building #2, 11th floor, #1112A/B).
