Multi-channel retailer Evo is introducing a new retail strategy that may bridge at least one gap in communication and in the marketplace between online sellers and brick and mortar specialty retailers.
The La Familia program is Evo’s approach “to creating an omni-channel customer experience while promoting retailer health throughout our industry by partnering with local, specialty retail nationwide.” There are a number of layers to “La Familia,” but at its most basic level, Evo says it will partner with independent retailers in key markets, shipping orders directly into their stores to create a better customer service experience.
While evo and the specialty retail partners want to serve the same customer, they each offer something unique that the other can’t, and the online brand says this creates an opportunity for a mutually beneficial partnership that ultimately provides the customer with the best experience.

Basalt Bike & Ski Aspen, CO
