Why are you in retail if it's not working?This Furniture Today blog by Doug Stewart, particularly point #2, may answer your question. Hopefully, many will find this eye-opening. The most difficult thing we see is, retailers that wait too long to make the difficult decision to close and the recovery and/or profit all goes to the creditors.
Many retailers go to work, pay staff, plan ads and all of the normal day to day activities required to run a business, BUT.. do they have targets, goals, know what they should be targeting in gross sales, expenses, margins and more? This article is very fact-filled and should interest every furniture retailer. CLICK the HEADLINE of this story to read more now!
It's important to understand how critically important a "broom clean" store is to your recovery and profit!

Exciting News, PFP vendor/partner, Klaussner, has introduced the new Trisha Yearwood Home Collection this market. We've all learned that endorsed collections have to stand on their own.

Shown with Trisha, PFP team members, Angela Edwards and Tom Liddell.
PFP assisted Mazer's Furniture when they lost their lease on their Homewood location. The sale was amazing, surpassing all expected sales projections! Great news!
