Surge procures hand sanitizer, surgical masks, gloves and other essential goods to supply thousands of stores nationwide
Memphis, TN, April 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Surge Holdings, Inc. (“Surge”) (SURG), developer of the SurgePays™ Marketplace Network for convenience stores, bodegas and community markets that provide products to the underbanked, today announced it has begun supplying urgent response care, safety, sanitary, and health-related products through its SurgePays™ Direct Wholesale Marketplace. Surge has leveraged direct manufacturing and trade association relationships to procure hand sanitizers, masks, gloves, and other goods, which it has begun selling to its network of independent retailers nationwide.
Brian Cox, Chairman and CEO of Surge Holdings, stated, “These urgent care products are scarce and in extremely urgent demand across all economic groups including the underbanked market which represents over 25% of the US population. Our mission has always been to supply the underserved and underbanked communities with essential supplies and services at fair prices. The current landscape has given us an opportunity to show that our value is the relationship we have with these community markets and our ability to pivot quickly to supply these stores with products their customers need now. Although supply chains have been disrupted throughout the country, I believe stores purchasing direct through the SurgePays Direct Wholesale Marketplace will have these essential products available on their shelves much sooner than if had they waited for the traditional supply chains to catch up.”
Cox added, “We anticipate some exciting results due to the support of AATAC, one of the nation's largest private trade associations, which is blasting alerts and sending notifications out to tens of thousands of retailers nationwide. Our goal is to transition these sales into long term clients on our network so that we can generate recurring sales revenue across all of our product categories on the SurgePays Direct Wholesale Marketplace.”
