WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT (February 10, 2016) As Ibex Outdoor Clothing continues to expand its wholesale channel in a constantly evolving retail environment, the manufacturer of premium technical Merino wool apparel and accessories announces that it has partnered with Locally to better support its specialty retailers.

Powering local product discovery, Locally provides a customer-driven experience. The platform allows customers to support their local economy and shop within their community.

“Locally is an incredible format to drive online sales via our brick and mortar retail partners,” explains Matt Kaplan, VP of Sales for Ibex. “In a time when brands, including Ibex, and retailers are looking to capture the same customer, Locally helps to promote specialty retail partners in the cities and towns where customers live.”

Through this partnership, Ibex.com can allow consumers to come to the Ibex website, explore the entire depth and breadth of its product line, and when they are ready to buy, Locally shows the customer where the Ibex retailers are located that are close to them and what that retailer has in stock.

Kaplan continues, “Through a combination of the Ibex site and the Locally data feed, we are able to drive customers to our retail partners where they can try on the product, interface with the retail sale associates and product experts, and they don’t have to pay for shipping. The interaction improves sell through, avoids returns, and gives our consumers and retail partners an opportunity to interface directly.”

Locally.com tracks local inventory from more than 2,900 brands in 195 U.S. and Canadian cities. For additional information, visit www.locally.com.
