Snap One is looking to strengthen its position as a source for locally available custom integration products with the recent launch of a new Snap One Local Partner Store operated by AllNet in Marietta, Ga., and expected grand openings in Hollywood, Fla., Nashville, Tenn. and Austin, Texas by Labor Day.
The new stores bring the company’s national footprint to a total of 31 locations, further expanding its network to allow partners in more regions to procure on-demand products, training and in-person customer service.
In addition to carrying full product lines from Snap One’s brands, partners will also be able to source some of today’s most popular products from third-party vendors such as Sony, Samsung, SONOS, Yamaha, Denon, Yamaha, Marantz, Klipsch, KEF, Ubiquiti, URC, RTI, Legrand, Lutron and more. These fully-stocked locations are designed with a self-service warehouse format, providing partners hands-on access to browse and select products at their convenience. Same-day job site delivery is also available.
“Increasing our national presence through four new Snap One Local Partner Stores accomplishes our goal of bringing Snap One brands, services and education to our partners,” says Wally Whinna, Snap One senior vice president of local. “With 31 locations, we are well on our way to achieving our goal of providing same-day local product availability to Snap One Partners in the U.S. Establishing locations in four vital south and southeast markets punctuates our commitment to being the ultimate one-stop local shop.”
In addition to providing same-day product availability, each branch furthers Snap One’s mission to offer its partners educational programs on new products and services thanks to large training facilities at each location that can be used to host vendor, technology and business education events.
“Our Partners will find the branches staffed with experienced, knowledgeable and market-savvy industry pros focused on supporting their projects from design to the final trim,” says Whinna. “From on-demand product pickups to new product demonstrations hosted by manufacturers, each Local Partner Store increases local Partners’ ability to complete jobs on time and on budget with the latest and greatest integration solutions.”
The Marietta, Georgia location is open for immediate service, with Hollywood, Fla. expected to open at the end of July. The Nashville, Tenn., and Austin, Texas locations are planned to open in August. Due to varied health restrictions and guidance throughout 2020 and 2021, on-site training and product demonstrations were put on hold and are expected to return by Q4 2021.
