How can a retailer participate?
Retailers join the program by stocking the complete range of Best Selling Products in a depth of 2. To continue participation, retailers need to complete a stock check with their ANA specialist on a monthly basis, re-ordering products that have sold back to a minimum of 2.
If a retailer has multiple locations, can each location participate?
Yes, each location that has been approved by Asmodee North America can participate.
What if a retailer already has stock of these Best Sellers?
Retailers that already have stock do not need to purchase the entire range again. Retailers can complete a stock check with their ANA specialist and submit a picture of their existing stock and order the products they are missing to start participating.
Do retailers need to provide a picture every month?
We’d love to see how the product is merchandised in our retailers’ stores, but we do not require a monthly photograph.
How often will the range be changed?
The bestsellers range will be reviewed and updated annually in the third quarter.
How does a retailer qualify for returns on replaced or removed games?
Complete the monthly stock check with your ANA specialist. Send a picture of the games that have been replaced or removed since last month’s stock check. A credit will be issued to your account.
Are the two free games limited to products in the top 40?
While we encourage retailers to use this resource to provide demos of our bestselling games, retailers are not limited to the Best Sellers product range. Furnished games will be provided as finished products.
Are retailers required to use the rack?
Retailers are free to choose whether or not they’d like to use the rack, as each store has its own look and feel.
When will the benefits of the program start?
Racks and point of sale and promotional materials will begin to arrive in retailers stores in Q3 2018. Retailers that are participating can begin to choose their free games beginning in June 2018.
