Osprey announced a change in its distribution model in Canada. Starting June 2022, Osprey will begin direct fulfillment in Canada. Osprey has partnered with In-Sport Fashions for distribution in Canada since 2003.
“In-Sport Fashions has been integral in making Osprey the market leader in Canada,” said Layne Rigney, CEO of Osprey. “As we transition to a direct model and the next exciting chapter of Osprey’s development throughout Canada, we do so owing to a debt of gratitude to Dana and Andrew Nelson for their invaluable partnership in building Osprey Canada to where it is today.”
“It has been a great adventure for In-Sport Fashions to build such a reputable and iconic brand in Canada,” said Andrew Nelson, president of In-Sport Fashions. “We grew the Osprey brand to be sustainable and strong in the territory, and we are proud of the work we have accomplished. We wish Osprey all the very best in this new venture”.
In-Sport Fashions will continue to service Canadian retailers through May 31, 2022 and is working closely with the Osprey team on a seamless transition for its retail partners.
Osprey’s first selling presentations to Canadian accounts will be in October 2021 for Fall 2022 season. The first orders shipping to Canada under its new direct fulfillment model will begin June 1, 2022.
