It is floor stripping season!

Bullen saw a huge increase in floor care orders last month which means it is stripping season. But I wonder why it is still just assumed that you have to strip a floor all the way down to the tile each spring. Bullen has had a 3 year no strip system for the last 5 years that uses our Green Seal approved finish, deep scrub, restorer and dust control.

I told you about a month ago that now is the time to talk to your customers to get involved with testing and approvals for the next bid season. Let us know if you would like more information on the e-clean products. Send me e-clean info

Amazon to Expand Private-Label Offerings—From Food to Diapers Inc. in the coming weeks is set to roll out new lines of private-label brands that will include its first broad push into perishable foods, according to people familiar with the matter.

The new brands with names like Happy Belly, Wickedly Prime and Mama Bear will include nuts, spices, tea, coffee, baby food and vitamins, as well as household items such as diapers and laundry detergents, these people said.

Consumers have warmed to private-label brands since the days of generically named products sold in plain white packaging. Today, retailers from Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to Sephora to Dean & DeLuca sell a range of in-house brands that some may even view as higher quality.

Store brands reached $118.4 billion in U.S. sales last year, up about $2.2 billion from the prior year, according to the Private Label Manufacturers Association.
