About Us/Map

Evergreen Sales Group was founded in 1997 on the belief that there was a need for an experienced, fun and aggressive sales-driven agency which realizes that new business is what drives our industries forward. We provide the kind of sales and service that we expected to receive as former sales managers, retailers, and wholesale distributors, but rarely experienced.

We achieve this by relying on our diverse experiences, superior communication skills, utilizing the latest technologies, and by representing a limited number of manufacturers. Because we have remained committed to representing a limited number of manufacturers, we are proud to say that we have truly become a Northwest extension for each one of them.

We are experts on the customer base here in the Pacific Northwest, we are natives of the Pacific Northwest, our careers have been built here in the Pacific Northwest and finally we all reside here in the Pacific Northwest. Our business values are simple: We work hard to match the strengths of our manufacturers with the needs of our customers while never trading our belief in the principles of fairness, honesty and integrity while conducting our business.

Customers

Evergreen Sales Group calls on wholesale and retail customers doing business in several categories throughout the states of Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.

We have several retailers and wholesalers who do business in multiple categories and to a certain extent that shapes the products that we represent. Amazon.com, COSTCO Wholesale, Fred Meyer and BI-MART are all examples of Northwest customers that sell products into general merchandise, sporting goods, automotive, hardware, electronics and the marine categories.

We are fortunate to still have a fair amount of locally based regional retailers and wholesalers, many of them reach beyond our Pacific Northwest territory for business.

The Northwest customer base along with Evergreen Sales Group's knowledge and experience allow us to "cross-sell" many of the manufacturers’ products that we represent. Many products we represent fit well into a hardware store, automotive parts store, marine store or farm & fleet store. We look for products that we can present to 3 or 4 different types of customers, enabling more opportunities of exposure for our manufacturers.

Our wholesalers are among the best in the country and are always looking for opportunities to grow their distribution channels. We work closely with them to feed products to retailers and end users alike.

Sales

No matter the industry, today's business climate is ever changing and extremely competitive throughout all channels of distribution.

We have found that our customers require much more information to help them address the issues that impact sales growth and profits when reviewing items and product categories. Depending on whom we are presenting to, "making the pitch" can be a much more sophisticated process then ever before.

Because of this, we are working much closer with our manufacturers' in developing presentations and programs to match the manufacturers' strengths with our customers needs. We like to include product POG's, interchanges, current market trends, gross margin projections, return on investment projections and NPD information where applicable.

Every customer here in the Pacific Northwest has a unique set of needs when evaluating products and product categories. Because of our extensive local knowledge and diverse business backgrounds based here in the Pacific Northwest we pride ourselves in knowing what those needs are.

Service

In addition to "making the sale", ESG provides service and support to our customers and manufacturers tailored to the specific needs of the opportunity.

Here is some of what we do to accomplish this:

  • Develop sales & marketing strategies specific for our customers
  • Pull-through selling…to our customer's customers
  • Changeover Support
  • Customer Store Openings
  • Customer's Shows
  • Order Processing
  • Training Clinics and Demonstrations
  • Create Customer's Promotions and Promotional Materials
  • Service Retail Stores
  • Inventory support
