ANDOVER, MA (AUGUST 13, 2021) — Byrna Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: BYRN) (CSE: BYRN) (“the Company”) today announced that Bi-Mart, a retail chain predominantly located in the Pacific Northwest, began carrying Byrna products at 82 Bi-Mart stores beginning in late July.
As part of the relationship, Bi-Mart is stocking the Company’s products in display cases that prominently feature the Byrna®HD launcher and a selection of Byrna projectiles and accessories. With the addition of this retail relationship, Byrna products are now sold at approximately 1,600 brick and mortar locations across the United States.
“The expansion of our dealer network, including larger regional chains such as Bi-Mart, is an important component of our overall growth strategy,” stated Bryan Ganz, CEO of Byrna Technologies. “The addition of Bi-Mart to the growing list of retailers that carry our products further diversifies our revenue streams and places the Byrna brand in a high-traffic retail setting that consumers visit to purchase a wide variety of items. Our products have already been well received by Bi-Mart customers, as indicated by a replenishing order after only two weeks of selling the products.”
