Stihl, a renowned powerhouse in the realm of outdoor power equipment, has reigned as a global leader, setting the benchmark for innovation and precision in chainsaws, trimmers, blowers, and cut-off saws for residential and industrial users.
From its modest origins as a German engineering firm to its iconic status today, the brand’s unwavering commitment to quality has transformed the forestry, landscaping, and construction industries. Along with the responsibility to quality, Stihl has also demonstrated a solid commitment to their Independent Retailers by not allowing their products to be sold by big box stores. Instead, Stihl has developed a vast network of independent dealers specializing in servicing the products before and after the sale.
Historically, Stihl products could only be purchased by traveling to one of their independent dealers and bringing the item back to your home or business. Recently Stihl opened its retail permissions to allow users the best option for their needs, Buy Online Pickup in Store, Buy Online Deliver to Home, and now Buy Online Ship to Home.
Buy Online, Pickup in Store
Relating closely to their original sales model of doing research in the retail location and making your purchase, Stihl’s Buy Online, Pickup In-Store allows you to do your purchase research at home or in the office and place an order online for pickup in the store when it is convenient for you for by one of your employees.
Buy Online, Deliver to Home
Taking the Buy Online, Pickup in Store option one step further, Buy Online, Deliver to Home is more like a typical Internet transaction. However, it still allows the retailer to fully service the item and demonstrate the proper usage for the consumer. This option is a great local solution for the retailer.
Buy Online, Ship to Home
