STAG member news

STAG member news

The STAG member, based in Buckie, north east Scotland, won the STAG Independent Retailer 2013 AfterShokz Award after selling nearly 300 units of the brand’s Open Ear Sport Headphones since last September.

Resting in front of the ears, the headphones use bone conduction technology to transmit sound through the listener’s cheekbones to the inner ears, bypassing the eardrums completely.

Malcolm Slater, owner of Slater Sports, says: “We’re delighted to receive this award from AfterShokz, although the product sells itself - all you need to do is show people how they work. 

“We are a small independent, do not sell online and yet still sold hundreds of sets, all at full RRP.”

AfterShokz is a retailer’s dream, according to Slater: “They come in one size and colour, they’re small and easy to display, there’s no need to forward order, as you just top up when needed and, most importantly, so far the product has not been discounted online.

Owner of Slater Sports, Malcolm Slater says “Delighted to receive this award from AFTERSHOKZ , although they sell themselves all you need to do is show people how they work (they won’t sell sitting in a box on the shelf).  Great product with so many uses (not just for sport) and what’s amazing is we won the award for 2013 and only started selling them from September.  We are a small independent, do not sell online and yet still sold hundreds of sets all at full RRP.

“All that and we also get excellent service and support from Ross McPherson and the AfterShokz head office team. It’s us that should be giving them the award.”
