www.retailpitch.com The commerce network that links interested retailers with exciting new products
How many times have you said to yourself, “if I could just get my product in front of customers I know they would buy it.”? If you are like the rest of us, probably a thousand times a day.
Retailpitch.com is a different kind of network, we are a “commerce network” not a social network. Although the social networks have their place we want the product and retail owners to know that there is now a place for them.

A phone call to the mother and a communicated timeline would have created a very loyal customer.
