West Marine announced its semi-annual New Product Review Day will take place June 10 at the company's support center at 500 Westridge Dr. in Watsonville, Calif.

The review day allows prospective vendors to pitch new products to West Marine category managers and possibly get the chance to be sold at West Marine’s more than 320 retail stores and through its other channels of business.

“West Marine is committed to finding its customers the most impressive array of cutting-edge and high-quality boating equipment and gear,” West Marine executive vice president of merchandising Ron Japinga said in a statement. “Our New Product Review Day presents an exciting opportunity for vendors and inventors to bring new products to West Marine for boaters. We look forward to this event and finding great additions to our assortments.”
