DollarDays, a premier Internet-based product wholesaler to small businesses and local distributors, today marks its third birthday. [The company], which sells small caseloads of 25,000-plus consumer products to small businesses through its website at www.dollardays.com, opened its virtual doors for business in October 2001. DollarDays is a key player in helping small businesses compete with big-box retailers such as Walmart and helping traditional brick-and-mortar stores and would-be entrepreneurs open online retail outlets.
“From our first day of business, DollarDays’ mission has been to the small-business leader’s best friend,” said Marc Joseph, COO of the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company. “Reaching this birthday is proof that small businesses rely on us to make the most of their purchasing power and for the practical how-to advice that small-business people need for success.”
DollarDays celebrates this birthday after achieving significant business milestones. The company’s August 2004 revenues increased 196% over August 2003 revenues, beating the company’s previous record, and DollarDays announced a record one-month registration, with nearly 21,000 new customers registering on the site.
Additionally, DollarDays also reports a record 226 percent increase in orders during July 2004 over July 2003, and a record one-day registration with nearly 800 new customers registering on the site. In August, the DollarDays Website received more than 65 million hits.
“DollarDays is growing, not only with new customers, but with repeat business as well,” says Marc Joseph, DollarDays’ COO. “We will continue to break our own records as we expand into other business sectors, such as nonprofit organizations, where items purchased on DollarDays make their budgets stretch the farthest. […] Small-business owners are the core of our business, and small-business owners need to find the best value for their money. DollarDays’ record-breaking growth shows that small business owners are shopping with us to save money.”
