Opened in 2011, just east of Tampa Bay, Florida’s largest open-water estuary, is the home of Rossi, USA… a wholesale warehouse and distribution center, which brings Italy a little closer.
The motivation behind the distribution center was to make Rossi products accessible to smaller shops, (both potential and established customers) that could not place an order sizeable enough to warrant overseas shipping, or to speed up delivery of a needed order.
“The idea of our U.S. Warehouse is to ‘shorten’ the distance between Italy and the US. Today’s consumer is accustomed to immediate gratification, so fulfilling orders —quickly and cost-effectively— with in-between shipments from Florida has definitely supported those retailers,” explains Mattia Rossi.
Turnaround time is indeed quicker. Orders are immediately processed at the warehouse and are usually shipped the next day, helping retailers meet the demands of their customers who have come to rely on quick service. Orders can be placed on-line by the retailer, 24/7… A simple click when you’ve finished your order and a confirmation with the estimated time of delivery of merchandise is generated.
This additional shipping option complements the shipments from Italy; it’s perfect for fill-in orders that could quite often take over two weeks to deliver from Florence. They can now be delivered in as little as a few days.
Having part of the Rossi collection (a selection of the bestselling items in the US) available in the US, offers each and every retailer, no matter how small or how far, the opportunity to bring Rossi into their shop. Plus, it offers our customers the possibility of reordering in between shipments without having to pay a large amount for transportation. Large retailers, as well as smaller retailers, in both the US and Canada have benefitted from the arrangement.
Rossi has added new products every year and has increased the number of sku’s initially stocked.
Apart from the immediate advantages such as time saving and the possibility to order 24/7, our website is extremely user friendly and it enables those who are not so familiar with our collection to click on a single style and really zoom in to see the smallest details by hovering over the images.
Orders are immediately processed at the distribution center and are usually shipped the next day (by UPS Ground) to all USA and Canada destinations. Minimum order is only $150 with a flat shipping charge of $15. All orders over $500 receive free freight. Prices are wholesale and identical to our regular pricelist.
This spring we are adding some beautiful new products that, until now, have only been available through Rossi1931 in Italy.
