SBS Virtual Open House Starts Thursday

Published February 17, 2008

KENT, WA (BRAIN)—After 14 years, the SBS Armchair Open House has become a much anticpated event for IBDs.

Dealers can place orders by phone, fax or Internet and take advantage of savings up to 60 percent. Every single dealer across America, no matter where they are, can take advantage of special one-weekend-only pricing thanks to Seattle Bikes' "virtual" Open House. No travel expenses or added carbon footprint, no wasted weekend off, and no time spent suffering in a cold and musty warehouse.

"In terms of being green, our virtual Open House is just that," said SBS sales manager Brent Carlson. "No travel for our dealers and vendors means no extra use of fuel. The Armchair Open House format that SBS has used for more than a decade leaves no carbon footprint whatsoever. In today's world, our Armcahir Open House makes more sense than ever."

The 2008 Armchair Open House is slated to kick off Thursday, February 21 and will continue through Saturday February 23 by phone, Internet or fax. Phone lines will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (PST). On Sunday, February 24, Open House orders will only be taken on www.seattlebikesupply.com.

To help build the anticipation, dealers can find a list of the Open House Deals in their latest SBS Super Saver flyer, which has just arrived in their mailboxes. For four days only, SBS will be offering special pricing on hundreds of items, thanks to a joint effort with their loyal vendors and purchasing agents. Everything from lights to locks, wheels to cranks, pedals to pumps and everything in between is marked down for shops to stock up on, and crazy deals on non-advertised closeout items.

Again, Seattle Bike Supply and it's generous vendors will be giving away two trips for two to interbike '08 in Las Vegas. Any dealer who calls in to SBS during the SBS Armchair Open House will get one ticket entered into the sweepstakes. Two winners will be chosen on Thursday,
March 1 and announced on www.seattlebikesupply.com.

Sweepstakes rules: The SBS interbike trip includes airfare for two people plus four day/three night accommodations, including one night out for a free dinner with your SBS salesrep. Ground transportation not included.

Two of these trips will be given away. SBS reserves the right to select airline and hotel. Winners will be chosen in a random drawing. No purchase necessary. Contest void where prohibited.
