May 24, 2018, FORT WAYNE, INDIANA – Do it Best Corp. has formed an exclusive strategic partnership with Paint Sundries Solutions (PSS), an industry-leading national paint sundry supplier.

The new partnership will provide Do it Best Corp. members additional opportunities to grow and strengthen their paint departments with greater access to PSS’s customized retailer solutions, merchandising design services, and broad product selection. As a no-adder vendor, PSS purchases by Do it Best members can now bill through the co-op and accrue toward their rebates.
 
“This partnership strengthens our position as the first and best choice for independent retailers by providing them with access to additional products and solutions to grow their business in their paint departments,” said Steve Markley, Vice President of Merchandising for Do it Best Corp. “We know our members can lead the market in the paint category, and this partnership provides another option to support that vision. We are excited to partner and collaborate with the PSS team to serve our members even better.”
 
Based in Seattle, PSS is a leading supplier of paint-category products serving independent retailers across the country. Founded in 1958, PSS stocks and distributes more than 10,000 products from its five distribution centers across the United States.
 
“We are incredibly excited about this strategic partnership with Do it Best Corp. and in expanding our role in helping their members grow in this important category,” said Andrew Walsh, President and Chief Operating Officer of PSS. “Leveraging the strengths of both organizations, this partnership will help Do it Best members lead with paint.”
 
The PSS partnership is the latest in a number of key investments and enhancements in the paint category by Do it Best Corp. This includes the introduction of upgraded color selectors and new paint labels in 2016, followed by the introduction in 2017 of The Color Bar, a store-within-a-store paint department concept, and the launch of Best Look exclusive-branded paint applicators, accessories and tools.
