An Issue close to our hearts is the world hunger crisis.
An issue close to our hearts is the world hunger crisis, and specifically how it impacts children. In 2010, this conviction led us to partner with Rice Bowls, a non-profit organization that provides food for orphans around the world. We decided that for every jar candle, holiday candle, Afternoon Retreat Collection candle, and Sweet Grace Collection candle sold, we’d donate 3 meals to the Rice Bowls food budget. To date, retailers like you have enabled us to donate over 8.5 million meals, and we’re just getting started!
Another retailer-specific opportunity that comes with joining the Bridgewater family, is the Bridgewater Brand experience trip. We want you to meet the kids you’re impacting through your daily work, so you’ll have the opportunity to apply for an all-expenses paid trip to visit one of the Rice Bowls homes we support through Light a Candle Feed a Child! You can meet the kids and the house moms who prepare food each day, and experience one of the countries your work benefits.
Get ready for an in-store experience like no other: The Sweet Grace Effect.
The most important fragrance you’ll need to bring in is Sweet Grace. This scent has a cult-following which led us to create the Sweet Grace Collection in 2016. Now, many retailers bring in a selection of items from the Sweet Grace Collection to supplement their Bridgewater displays and feature a scented centerpiece in their store. Choose from personal care items such as hand cream, liquid soap, and bar soap or highlight the beautiful home décor vessels in the collection. No matter what you choose, you can’t lose with Sweet Grace.
As a retailer, you have the power to provide thousands of meals to children in need by educating your customers about Light a Candle Feed a Child. Burning a tester candle is a great way to begin a conversation about how they can get involved! Not only does a tester candle catch the attention of those who enter your store with its strong fragrance throw, but it also provides an opportunity to show the customer the clean burn they’ll enjoy from a Bridgewater candle due to our proprietary soy blend wax and lead-free cotton wicks. Once your customer smells our home-grown fragrances, sees the superior quality of the candle burning experience, and feels a connection to the child on the hang tag they’ll be feeding through their candle purchase, they’ll be loyal to your store for years to come. We promise!
We create home fragrance products that leave a lasting impression.
As we mentioned, burning a Bridgewater candle is an altogether different fragrance experience than many of your customers will be accustomed to. Our small jar candles pack a powerful punch, providing up to 70 hours of burn time and a significant cold-throw as well. Each of our candles is poured at our headquarters in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on the same premises where our fragrance team creates new scents each season. As a Bridgewater retailer, this means you have access to an exclusive group of fragrance experts who are tirelessly working to create unparalleled, one-of-a-kind scents that competitors simply cannot rival.
In addition to top-performing candles, you’ll be able to provide a litany of home fragrance products in over 28 fragrances so that your customers can fragrance each corner of their homes with a different product. Choose from reed diffusers, home fragrance oil, room sprays, wax melts, car air fresheners, laundry detergent, and scented sachets, all made in the USA and ready to make your store more profitable within days of being stocked.
To put it simply, Bridgewater fragrances quickly catch the attention of customers and keep them coming back for more.
