As of 5/1/20, we have implemented the following pandemic safety protocols for all sampling programs being executed through 3/31/21. You can view these protocols for IPI, our warehouse/fulfillment center, in compliance with U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security Worker’s Essential Critical Infrastructure During Covid-19 Response. As of this update, we are sampling in most of our networks, some with limited volumes (varies by state regulations and individual locations). We have and will continue to monitor state-by-state reopening rules from the New York Times and CNN (feel free to bookmark this page so you can monitor as well). Be well and stay safe. Brian Scott Sockin and Darlene Genander, Managing Directors.


Sampling Store™ has been a leading U.S. lifestyle product sampling agency, delivering more than 600 million samples for clients since 1994. Our focus is active / healthy lifestyle sampling with brands that meaningfully engage consumers and shoppers along their wellness and passion paths.


Product sampling is powerful but also can be costly, which is why you should entrust your activations to a company with experience, like ours. Our tagline is “Trial without the error” because we’ve honed best practices and compliance by executing hundreds of programs across many brand categories.


We’ve delivered on trial objectives for hundreds of CPG companies large and small, such as Kraft/Heinz, Mondelez, Quaker, Pukka, Kashi, Orgain, P&G, Uniliver, J&J, Nature’s Bounty, Boiron, and many major retailers such as Walmart, CVS/pharmacy, Walgreens, Publix, and Kroger.
