I hope everyone is as excited about Q4 as we are at Flat River Group! Signals from all our customers indicate that they will continue to order conservatively and really lean into our ability to support their assortments with our same-day dropship capabilities from all four of our DCs. We are building out our seasonal staff and increasing hours of operation in anticipation of this.
As I think about the changes since the beginning of 2023, it’s refreshing to see the spike in freight charges and supply chain hiccups are finally in the rearview mirror, and it feels like the consumer demand is normalizing. We’ve spent most of this year working on solving excess inventory issues, refining and improving our marketing efforts, and expanding and improving our forecasting process.
As we head into Toy Fair, we expect to strengthen our existing supplier relationships as well as add new ones. If you don’t already have an appointment with any of our purchasing team at upcoming shows, please reach out to your Flat River Group contact and make sure we connect in person.
Thanks to all our valued vendors for choosing Flat River Group as your ecommerce partner!
