Stewart Golf agrees Jumbo retail deal

3.52pm 8th December 2014 - Corporate

JumboGolfWereldPremium British trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has agreed an exclusive deal with the Netherlands’ largest golf retailer to stock its new R1 Push trolley.

The deal will see the new British built R1 Push stocked exclusively in all seven Jumbo Golfwereld superstores as well as the website. Jumbo will also be showcasing the new X9 Follow at demo days all over the country in 2015.

Stewart Golf CEO Mark Stewart said: “This is the first of what I hope to be many deals with key European retailers. Jumbo Golfwereld has a network of high quality stores with coverage all over the Netherlands, so represent a perfect fit for us.”

Bart van Pelt, General Manager of Jumbo Golfwereld, added: “Both the R1 Push and X9 Follow are unique products, and we are excited to bring them to the Dutch market.”

After announcing their new ‘direct to retail’ strategy last year, Stewart Golf has been in discussions with a number of the key European retailers. By working directly with retailers rather than via traditional distributors, the € RRP can be comparable to the £ price levelling the playing field for UK and European retailers.

Mark Stewart added: “It’s a vindication of our both our strategy and product range that a retailer of Jumbo Golfwereld’s calibre has come on board. It will take time to build relationships all over Europe but this is a long term strategy so we are prepared to be patient.”
