How do I set up an account with Bianchi?

I help my buddy run a little shop and we'd like to carry some Bianchi stuff. How do i set up an account with them? I can't find any contact info on their website.

Probably too late now but if you went to Interbike that would have been a great place for contacts of all companies.

Hello just where is your little shop? while the contact information will get you intouch with Bianchi USA unless you wish to carry their bicycle they may not sell you just accessories. most Bicycles companies require you to carry a certain percentage of accesories and parts (based on your preseason and project total sales) of the dollar amount of bikes you purchase. also Bianchi is one of the few comapanies the adheres to a strict territory policy. depending where you shop is and the customer base you may not be allowed to carry their bikes if there is another dealer nearby.

OH also it is a real shop yes? if you are not legitmate business, incorperated or some type of proprietorship, with tax numbers and insurance some companies may not deal with you. when I opened a small shop one company, whom I was dealing with a previous employee of another shop, refused to even sell to me COD because they had a policy requiring you to be in business as shop for atleast one year.

Yeah. as Bianchigirll states, the Co. adheres to strict territory policies, you also need to be a player, buy a bunch o' bikes, they won't cherry picking.
Besides, I'm aquainted with a man who owned a not so small shop for many years, he'd dropped the ball. A huge place opened up a mile away, they've got the Bianchi line now.
