An indiCo team made its first exploratory journey in April 2017 to attend the Canton Fair in Guangzhou, China. The team included indiCo leaders, category managers and buyers with directives to explore opportunities in two areas: relevant products and qualifying manufacturers. Because of their excellent work, indiCo began developing plans to support independent stores with quality-sourced products.
Since then, the group narrowed to a core sourcing team with over 40 years of independent store buying experience. This team advances indiCo’s value by identifying supplier and product opportunities, personally traveling to supplier offices and facilities, reviewing factory compliance and product quality, creating purchase plans, managing the production timeline and communicating product information to marketing, sales and customer service.
