ATLANTIC CITY — Pipedream Products was the recipient of the Vendor of the Year award at Spencer’s annual Vendor Summit held Wednesday night.
The award recognizes and rewards outstanding partnerships, innovative contributions, excellent service in shipping and delivery, and strategic approaches to growing sales and profits. Pipedream was the only adult company to win the award in a pool of more than 300 mainstream, gift, and apparel manufacturers.
“This is one of the most humbling experiences in my life,” Orlandino said. “Ever since I was a kid loading trucks leaving for Spencer’s, I dreamed of partnering up with them. From the day I got my first product into Spencer’s over 20 years ago, to standing up on the podium and accepting this award, this whole experience has been a dream come true. It motivates me to push forward and work harder than ever to remain a valued Spencer supplier.”
The award is the most recent in a string of victories for the adult novelty giant, but winning mainstream awards is always a little more rewarding for Orlandino and the Pipedream team, the company said.
“It’s a testament to the amazing partnership between both organizations, as we work together and continue to create innovative products that make Spencer’s the mall’s premier destination for sexy fun,” Orlandino said. “It’s been a pleasure collaborating with the entire Spencer’s team and we look forward to what the future holds.”
