Dekline Footwear Enters Distribution Deal with Eastern Skateboard Supply
 
Dekline footwear has entered into an exclusive distribution deal with Eastern Skateboard Supply. ESS will distribute Dekline footwear for the Eastern region of the United States. Tum Yeto Inc., a 15 year-old vertically-integrated supplier of skateboard products, has supplied ESS with its top selling skateboard brands, Toy Machine, Foundation and Pig since 1989.
“Partnering with ESS to distribute Dekline footwear is a winning situation for both parties, and most importantly Dekline’s retail partners,” said Tod Swank, CEO of Tum Yeto Inc. “ESS has excellent logists and a world class sales team that will allow Dekline footwear to be distributed more efficiently than ever in the Eastern territory of the United States,” Swank noted.

The strategic partnership will allow Dekline to expedite and fulfill the increased demand for its products on the East coast. “For ESS, adding Dekline shoes is another great way to diversify our selection. Until now, shoes were one of the few categories crucial to skate shops that we could not offer our accounts,” added Reggie Barns, CEO of Eastern Skateboard Supply.

Eastern Skateboard Supply’s Sales Territories for Dekline: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Conneticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida.
