January 16, 2019, FORT WAYNE, INDIANA – Do it Best is announcing the date of its spring Open Buying Day as it continues to enhance the selection of potential products it offers to its member-owners from domestic and international vendors.

Do it Best will host Open Buying Days twice in 2019 at its world headquarters in Fort Wayne, with the spring Open Buying Day scheduled for February 28. Qualified vendors will have the opportunity to meet with the Merchandising team to present their company and products, as well as learn about the requirements to become a Do it Best vendor. There is no charge for selected vendors to participate.

“As we work to ensure Do it Best is the first and best choice for our members, discovering new vendors and innovative products is an important part of helping them continuously offer a product mix that is uniquely tailored to their customers,” said Dent Johnson, Vice President of Merchandising for Do it Best. “We are committed to identifying and providing solutions-oriented products, which is why we’re excited about our Open Buying Day experience and making it easier for selected vendors to participate - and, most importantly, for our members to benefit from the addition of new products to our distribution network.”

Vendors interested in participating should visit the Open Buying Days website to complete the initial questionnaire, which begins the registration process. The deadline to apply is February 8, and space is limited. The second Open Buying Day of 2019 will be held later this fall.
