DALTON, GA, September 12, 2007—Karastan aims to put more jingle in the pockets of retailers this winter with its “Holiday Accents” Promotion. Starting October 1, Karastan is authorizing the sale of its winter-themed accent rugs at participating retail stores. This limited-time promotion includes two patterns of heirloom quality, woven wool rugs—Holiday Wreath and Holiday Patchwork. Both come in 2 x 4 “accent” sizes, with a suggested retail of approximately $199.

“We received tremendous response to our “Holiday Accents” Promotion when we showed it in Atlanta,” says Stacie Shiver, Brand Specialist for Karastan. “It’s an easy, clever way to increase cash-n-carry business at a time when customers are looking for unique gift ideas. Retailers simply use our tower display, which many already have, and fill it with winter-themed rugs or a mix of accent patterns. Promotional panels, designer gift boxes and an optional poster stand add a festive touch to the store and encourage impulse purchasing.”

Retailers ordering 10 or more accent rugs from September 3 – December 3 will receive discount pricing and a free POP set, which includes 2 tower panels, 1 poster and 10 designer gift boxes (accent towers and poster stands sold separately). To order, contact your local Karastan sales representative.
