SATA gear available online

Dan-Am Company has always sold SATA clothing in their catalog, but if a size or style ran out then it was no longer available. So in the fall of 2017 they decided to open an on-line apparel store.
“We decided that we wanted to have an online store that can be updated with the latest styles and sizes without having to deal with a lot of inventory or overstock of odd sizes,” Katrina Jorgensen-Wacholtz, co-coordinator of the SATA USA gear, said. “The website makes it easier for customers to get their clothing right away, every style and size is always available and if an item is on back order, it doesn’t take long to get the product delivered to the customer’s door.”
