West Marine Announces New Product Review Day on March 20

Marine retail chain, West Marine, headquartered in Wasonville, California, is planning a New Product Review Day set for Friday, March 20. West Marine's New Product Review Day enables prospective inventors and vendors to pitch new products to West Marine category managers for consideration to be sold in West Marine retail stores and on westmarine.com.

“New product review day is a fun way for us to see creative innovations in boating, fishing, paddling and sailing gear,” said CEO, Matt Hyde. “Our category managers get introduced to new companies and new products and some end up being added to our product line.”

All inventors and vendors wishing to attend New Product Review Day must schedule an appointment. To submit a product and request an appointment, email the West Marine new product team at vendorinfo@westmarine.com for an application that contains additional information and guidelines.

The deadline for submitting an application is March 9, and successful applications will be given appointments by March 13. The next New Product Review Day will be in late September 2015.

Founded in 1968 by a sailor, West Marine, Inc. has grown to become one of the largest specialty retailers with over 275 stores located in North America and Puerto Rico.
