Increase your store's grocery revenue and gross margin
Gross +$5 per item
Add Kitchen knife sharpening mailing kits to your grocery category mix. Purchase each unit for ~$3 and retail it for $9.99. Your customer will save that amount on their purchase at Vivront.com. No catch.
Vivront kits don't expire. This reduces waste and increases margin
Save shelf space
Vivront kits don't take shelfspace in their own point of purchase that you can move in store based on season. Without the point of purchase kits often get merchandised atop of cases along with other homegoods, grilling or seasonal products.
Increase foot traffic
~90% of America's kitchen knives have never been sharpened.* When your customers share the Vivront solution with their friends those persons will seek out Vivront at your store.
Partner with America's Favorite Kitchen Knife Sharpener by Mail
Like Bagster sells soft side dumpsters where home remodelers shop, so also you profit from a partnership with Vivront sharpening mailing kits in your product mix.
Like they are shipped to local stores before purchase, we meet and exceed the USPS guidelines for safely shipping kitchen knives for sharpening. We follow section 443 of the USPS Publication 5. Secure outer packaging in a strong custom container is included. Inner packaging is also provided that creates additional cushion. No marking that indicates the contents are placed on the outside of the mailpiece. 👍

Those who sharpen by mail sharpen every 6-12 months.
