- Sidelines Sports and Fresh Mitts will collectively work together to establish Fresh Mitts, an after sport-hand deodorizer, as a key component of the athlete's toolkit
- Sidelines Sports will act as exclusive distributor in Canada and Europe
TORONTO, Oct. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Mike Dawson, Founder of the innovative sporting goods company Fresh Mitts Inc. is pleased to announce its first Canadian distribution partnership with Sidelines Sports.
Sidelines Sports and Fresh Mitts will collectively work together to establish Fresh Mitts as a key component of the athlete's toolkit. Sidelines Sports, the leader in distributing hockey and sport accessories in Canada, has strong relationships with large retailers like Canadian Tire, Sport Chek and Source for Sports, and will act as exclusive distributor in Canada.
Fresh Mitts is a scientifically formulated after-sport hand deodorizer that works to kill the smell caused by sports gloves. Moreover, the hand cream is grease-free and fast drying, kills bacteria, and moisturizes hands. It's also packaged in a durable plastic jar for easy, leak-free travel.
"The product was created based on pure necessity as the smell left on an athletes hands after playing any sport where gloves are worn is a well-known and long-standing problem. 'Finally' is the best word to summarize public response to the product," said Dawson. "With Sidelines' strong retail relationships, the team at Fresh Mitts will be able to focus on marketing efforts and expanding into the US market while the Sidelines team works to secure more retailers across Canada."
"Sidelines is excited to have the distribution rights to Fresh Mitts after-sport hand deodorizer," said Bruce Behrend, Owner of Sidelines Sports. "So far, the reception from retailers and end-users has been very positive and we look forward to expanding the product's presence in Canada."
