WARWICK, R.I., July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- After asking league administrators, athletic directors, coaches, parents and players nationwide about the biggest challenges they face, SquadLocker, the nation's leading one-stop-shop athletic apparel dealer, has responded by introducing SquadLocker MVP.

SquadLocker MVP consists of key initiatives that will ensure availability of the most popular team gear and uniforms, address consumer demand for even faster delivery, and offer an unprecedented no-hassle return policy, something no one else in the custom gear industry offers

 

"The industry was already struggling to compete with our 2-week turnaround, so 2-3 days absolutely puts us in a league by ourselves. In addition, over 95% of orders leave facility in a FedEx 2-day shipping pouch, which means ultra-fast delivery to all 50 states."

- Gary Goldberg, SquadLocker CEO and Founder

 

"A common problem involved vendors running short on select stock before all of the players had their required apparel," said SquadLocker CEO and Founder, Gary Goldberg. "That resulted in players having mismatched gear or uniforms, or not having their required gear by the start of their season. SquadLocker MVP items helps eliminate this issue by identifying best-selling gear that partner vendors have agreed to produce in quantities to cover demand, and place deep inventories on-site at SquadLocker's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. So now admins and coaches can offer players a selection that ensures they will never take to the field, court or rink without the right uniform or gear again."

While SquadLocker's two-week turnaround is already unrivaled in the industry, nationwide consumer demand for immediate gratification is putting even greater pressure on online retailers, many of whom do not require the extra, manual decoration step of custom team gear and uniform providers. But SquadLocker loves a challenge, said Goldberg, and they are ready to deliver. "SquadLocker MVP items can be shipped in as fast as 2-3 days," he said. "The industry was already struggling to compete with our 2-week turnaround, so 2-3 days absolutely puts us in a league by ourselves. In addition, over 95% of orders leave facility in a FedEx 2-day shipping pouch, which means ultra-fast delivery to all 50 states."

Because gear and uniforms are customized for leagues and teams, returned items cannot be placed back into stock for resale to other consumers, so return policies in the industry have been historically strict. Until now, said Goldberg. SquadLocker MVP items come with a no-hassle return promise, the first and only one of its kind in the industry. Consumers can return up to 5 customized items per year for replacement or full refund, no questions asked.

"Each of these initiatives put our competition on its heels," said Goldberg, "All three make SquadLocker MVP truly revolutionary."
