Products in the Gerson International seasonal program are designed, imported and distributed into two complete lines of seasonal merchandise (Fall/Christmas & Spring/Summer). The Gerson Companies is comprised of two divisions – our Gerson Everyday division and our Gerson International Limited (GIL) division. Our Gerson Everyday division includes several popular brands of products that can be sold and replenished year-round: Everlasting Glow, Lone Elm Studios, The GG Collection, Flint Hills Studio, and Options Jewelry. In our Everyday division, our experienced merchants research trends in the gift and home décor markets to design uniquely-crafted products for the home year-round. These products are imported to our distribution center and kept in stock to replenish orders from our customers throughout the year. Our GIL division is our Book-and-Buy program comprised of season product lines available for purchase at specific intervals during the year to meet our retail customers’ needs. The GIL division includes the following brands: Garden Meadow, Universal SunRay, and Sterling. In our GIL division, we pre-book orders with our customers twice a year approximately 6 months in advance of shipment. Once orders are received and processed, we manufacture, import and distribute based upon the inventory levels pre-sold in advance of shipment. This allows us to keep inventory lean with few mark-ups so we can offer our customers competitive prices. Any remaining inventory is held in our distribution center and offered for at-once shipment as supplies last.
