Gamut.com uses a proprietary information system that manages and organizes a comprehensive list of product attributes, application-specific imagery and rich, technical data. This enables the website to generate relevant, curated search results that help customers quickly find and purchase the right products to get the job done.

The technology behind Gamut.com provides a new way to help customers find exactly what they need along with associated product suggestions in a simplified – but complete – experience."
Gamut.com offers more than 400,000 products in 32 categories with additional products from Grainger's stocked inventory to be added over time.

"Gamut.com is the latest of these initiatives, designed to benefit customers during specific and important buying occasions. We believe Gamut.com, along with the other actions we have recently taken, will help us create an even stronger partnership with our customers."
Backed by Grainger's nationwide distribution network, Gamut.com orders of $99 or more, pre-tax, ship free, with most items shipping the same day and frequently arriving within 24 hours.
