PCNA Partners With JanSport®
Supplier adds eco-friendly styles from popular bag brand to retail brand portfolio
Pittsburgh, PA – October 4, 2021 – PCNA is once again expanding their family of brands with the addition of their newest retail partner, JanSport®. The backpack brand joins an already impressive family of brands in not only the bags category but also among the eco-friendly styles carried by the supplier since the majority of JanSport packs available at PCNA will be made in part with recycled materials.
When asked about the new partnership, Liz Haesler, Chief Merchandising Officer for PCNA says, “JanSport is a brand whose legacy precedes them. They represent a feeling of nostalgia for so many people and we are thrilled to add them to our impressive portfolio of retail brand partners.” Haesler continues, “As a leader in the bags category, we take great pride in making sure we provide our distributor partners with the best selection of quality, on-trend pieces. Not only does JanSport offer a great selection of packs made in part with recycled fabrics, but their packs are designed to last and come with a limited lifetime warranty, minimizing the brand’s waste and environmental impact – so with every sale, we are one step closer to protecting our environment.”
PCNA is launching the brand with a JanSport backpack style and more bags will be added by the end of the year and into 2022. By housing JanSport inventory at their warehouse, PCNA can accommodate large orders through both inventory and their best-in-class decorating capacity. Better yet, by inventorying products on-site, PCNA will be able to accommodate quick-turn orders through their SureShip® service so customer orders can ship out next-day if needed.
JanSport is available through PCNA in the U.S. and can be found at PCNA.com.
