The Inside Scoop for Members

Independent retail is tricky

To stay on top of everything you need to know to do business — industry trends, group updates, member news and more — you need a source of information you can trust. Where can you turn to get the inside scoop?

BrandSource is the communications hub you’ve been looking for

In addition to offering industry-leading retail programs, digital marketing platforms and business intelligence, we also put a premium on great communication with members. We know how complicated it is to succeed as an independent appliance, furniture, mattress or electronics dealer, and it’s our mission to help you do just that. But how do members know what’s happening?


We have created a system that ensures you have access to all the news, updates, announcements and guidance you need, today and every day.

Our flagship website is where you’ll find the top group and industry news every day of the week. Our user-friendly interface shows you all the news stories, industry updates, special announcements and anything else that can help you make smart decisions and do business better.

YourSource Magazine

Our quarterly print publication is a glossy magazine filled with feature-length articles, briefs about the goings-on in the regions and columns by our guest experts. Our legacy publication, YourSource is where you’ll find in-depth accounts of members and vendors, words of wisdom from CEO Jim Ristow and stunning design and graphics. 


Your time is valuable and we don’t want you to have to dig to find the info you need, so we put it right into your virtual hands.
