National Service

Knapp, Hawley & Associates Inc. provides service from coast to coast for corporate level presentations and in-store service where necessary depending on the product line and market in question.  Detailed, in-depth presentations are the norm. Over the years, we have made hundreds of presentations. We realize that listing new products is only the end of the beginning. The number of merchandisers changes from time to time based on our needs. Several are bilingual.

Category Management

We take pride in understanding our markets and our product lines. Being national in scope we have an overview of what is happening in the industry. Category management means many things, from customized programs, in-store merchandising, planograms, program selling and more.

In-Store Merchandising Support

Merchandising support covers many areas at store level. Planograms, modular set-up, POP displays, POS management, new item placement, returns, retail price management and order solicitation are all in a days' work. One particular strength is product knowledge training. Our merchandisers are trained to give product knowledge sessions at store level on an on-going basis.

Trade Show Support

We have organized, coordinated and participated in hundreds of Trade Shows. We consider Trade Shows an integral part of our success. Trade Shows provide a forum to launch new products and solidify existing relationships.
