This is a B2B marketplace
West of downtown St. Petersburg between 16th and 31st Streets, is the Grand Central District – a design district of galleries, shops, restaurants and the home of the USA wholesale warehouse and distribution for Rossi1931.
Rossi first opened the US warehouse in 2011. The idea behind it 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 needed their order quickly. Enhancing service was the initial goal of the distribution operation. Mattia Rossi explains,
“When we first started to talk about a warehouse the idea was to somehow ‘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.”
Turnaround time is indeed better. Orders are immediately processed at the distribution center 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 the next thing you’ll receive is the ETA for your merchandise.
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 a small 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.
Over the years we have been able to increase the number of sku’s initially stocked. In addition to our own new products, we carry a number of handcrafted artisan products from Florence:
Vintage calendars, posters and paper from a popular printer who began the vintage trend many years ago, fine leather journals made of soft calves leather, filled with authentic cotton Amalfi paper, deckled by hand, (The 80 sheets of paper are stitched by hand with fish- line.) and picture frames, made of ash and cherry wood, painted to match the letterpress paper.
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. Products are available for immediate shipping to all USA and Canada destinations. Delivery 1 – 3 days from receipt of order to UPS Ground, all U.S.A. and Canada destinations.
Only $ 150 minimum with a flat shipping charge of $15. Free freight for orders over $500. Prices are wholesale and identical to our regular pricelist.
There are several other ways to place your direct US orders: the warehouse has a dedicated phone: 352-428-2030 (a warehouse representative will take your order and answer questions) and a fax (with a downloadable form available) for customers to send their orders: 813-433-2577. Of course, we also recommend you contact your local sales representative, if you have one in your home area.
