D&H CANADA ENCOURAGES RETAILERS TO OFFER POWER BANKS, ACCESSORIES TO ADDRESS POKEMON GO

- D&H Wants its Dealers and Retailers to Take Advantage of the International Pokémon GO Craze, Leveraging an Array of Power Banks and Bluetooth Headsets -

BRAMPTON, ONT - August 3, 2016 - D&H Canada, a leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, wants its retailers, etailers and dealers to profit from the latest trends--including the wild popularity of Niantic's Pokémon GO mobile game, which has users running-down phone batteries with abandon across the continent. Retailers can capitalize on this phenomenon by offering any of the hundreds of portable power bank products D&H Canada carries, which can be part of an accessory bundle for cell phones and mobile devices. The distributor offers portable chargers and power banks from manufacturers including Aluratek, APC, Belkin, DigiPower, Griffin, TP-LINK, SIIG, Verbatim, and CODi. Several of these models are available in colours to coordinate with the Pokémon GO teams.

In addition, audio continues to be a hot category, with Bluetooth accessories that can be rolled into a Pokémon GO bundle. Bluetooth headsets in fact may become a more essential accessory going forward, as certain device manufacturers are trending away from the incorporation of headphone jacks. D&H offers Bluetooth headphones from Jabra, Plantronics and more, in a range of price points.

"Pokémon GO has been getting users out and about, exploring the physical world. Why not leverage that through an accessories package, especially if it might attract new customers to the brick-and-mortar sales floor?" said Randy Churchill, director of marketing for D&H Canada. "We try to motivate our customers take advantage of trends and market developments. Accessory bundles offer higher margins than hardware sales, so we always encourage them as add-ons to fuel incremental revenues."

"We're excited to be working with D&H to increase exposure of our new Survivor Rugged Power Bank and Premium Braided cables, with our 'Guaranteed for Life' warranty. These items are perfectly suited for Pokémon GO-themed accessory packages," said Brett Whittenberg, senior distribution sales manager at Griffin Technology. "Creative marketing strategies such as this can help retailers differentiate their brand and attract youth-oriented, tech-savvy customers." D&H Canada recently entered into a new agreement with Griffin to offer this manufacturer's power products, Survivor Rugged phone and tablet case line, and other technologies to the Canadian retail sector.

D&H customers can contact their account representatives at (800) 340-1008 for additional information.
