Bellmore, New York - (June 5, 2017) – Road Runners LLC announced several company expansions this week.

The Southwest region is expanding to a second showroom in the Dallas Market Center and doubling their sales force and product offerings. This second division allows Road Runners to introduce their largest collection of new-to-Dallas Market Center manufacturers ever presented. The additional showroom along with their newly remodeled current space will feature premium giftware, lifestyle products and fun new finds. In addition to emerging brands, the company represents manufacturers such as Mangiacotti, Peter Pauper Press, Primitives by Kathy and Time Concept. With double the showroom space, customers will experience more unique choices in both Dallas and their new, larger Atlanta location. These expansions will make it easier for retailers to discover the right product mix for their store all under one roof. Retailers who visit the welcoming and refreshingly fun locations will discover a surprising departure from the average showroom experience.

“Road Runners is a premier showroom offering buyers a fantastic selection of best sellers as well as new discoveries. We applaud their continuing success and their impressive expansion. To their hardworking team we offer congratulations, and we also encourage buyers to stop in and see what makes Road Runners so special,” said Cindy Morris, president and CEO of Dallas Market Center.

Additionally, the company is expanding its sales force in both the Southeast and the Southwest markets with coverage extending into both the MINK (Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Kansas) and the Mid-Atlantic (Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware and Pennsylvania) regions. With this expansion, the agency now covers nearly 60 percent of the United States.

“Road Runners is well known for bringing to market emerging entrepreneurs, on-trend, maker-made, affordable, innovative, and unique luxuries. This territory and showroom growth will allow us to not only expand our fun product mix but, more importantly bring better service to our customers with a territory rep nearby,” said Tosha Pearson, Southwest Regional Sales Manager.
