Founded in 1985, AVA’s very essence has been developing solutions for retail.  We pride ourselves on being an integral component of a "delighted" customer experience.  Helping clients capitalize on any and all sales opportunities, while driving gross profit and eliminating shrink. Instead of having multiple levels of management our resources are utilized in retail support, and superior robust items, geared to aiding customers with a more precise and effective use of their labor, while maintaining in stock positions and allowing labor to concentrate on High Gross Profit offerings.  We are a privately held, nimble, and ever evolving organization adapting constantly to the ever-changing demands on the retail business.
