GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — Mega Group USA and protection products and services company Safeware have announced a partnership that makes Safeware the preferred provider for the buying group's product protection plan program for member retailers.
The program, administered by Safeware, "allows members the opportunity to provide quality product protection to their customers in a professional and informative manner," Mega Group said in a release.
Mega Group CEO Rick Bellows praised Safeware's "quality of service, technology, very talented people and precise attention to detail. Our need to continue to drive our dealer base with service growth and technology fits in line with our strategic relationship with Safeware."
Separately, Mega said it will launch a Whirlpool appliance gallery for its furniture dealers during the winter Las Vegas Market, Jan. 30-Feb. 3. The group said the exclusive program "will set these dealers apart in the marketplace and give them a higher return on sales per square foot." Part of the gallery will be installed in Mega's World Market Center space, B-1154.
