Irvine, July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Terra Tech Corp (TRTC) a leader in sustainable agricultural products, announced today that it has launched a new e-commerce platform along with strategic partner Family Hydroponics, the nation's largest urban agricultural retail franchise group. Last year Terra Tech signed an agreement with Family Hydroponics, which operates over thirty stores throughout eight states. Part of that agreement was for Terra Tech to design and manage Family's online store to compliment their strong retail presence. The online store has a competitive advantage over other online hydroponic retailers due to familys' diverse geographic footprint, which allows for faster shipping and greater affordability for consumers. www.Grassvalleyhydrogardenstore.com is the first site to be launched and will be supplied by one of their largest and most successful locations in Grass Valley, CA.
Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech Corp., is excited for the chance to work with Family Hydroponics. Family is the largest retailer of urban agricultural products in the market today with over $25 Million in buying power and the broadest reach of any hydroponics merchant. Family Hydroponics has long been committed to expanding their retail footprint of urban gardening stores throughout the US and as part of the agreement GrowOp Technology Ltd., a Terra Tech subsidiary, will have their products featured throughout the site.
"Urban agriculture is taking root throughout this country and the Family brand has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in the market," said Peterson. "Over the past several years we have seen sales of hydroponic equipment move from traditional brick and mortar to online retailers. We are confident that Family Hydroponics can replicate the success they have had in traditional retail to the online community."
Terra Tech Corp., through their subsidiary GrowOp Technology, distributes and markets a line of premier hydroponic equipment to retail stores throughout the United States.
