Revised Retail Account Kit Now Easier to Use

To reduce complexity, we’ve completely overhauled the Retail Account Kit (G1001, G8101). Gone is the file folder and the several loose documents it contained. In their place we’ve created a booklet that includes the essentials for establishing a retail account, including the following forms:

• Retail Account Application
• Uniform Sales Tax Certificate
• Confidential Credit Application

The booklet also covers our freight & handling terms, shipping information, perks of placing a qualifying order and an overview of the Retail Co-op Advertising Program. The kit includes a copy of the Retail Program Catalog (G3520).

A snag in production has caused a delay in the introduction of the new kits. They should be available around June 15. Watch the Dealer Zone for an announcement of availability.

See the June AMSOIL Magazine for more information.
