Gina Bruno-Dunn, Bruno’s Home Furnishings, Oklahoma, City, OK
The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furniture Promotions did to assist them, what would they say?
My name is Gina Bruno Dunn. I am from Oklahoma City. Our store is called Bruno’s Home Furnishing. We are a sixty year old furniture store, family owned, third generation. My father was still involved in the business at the age of 86. We suffered in economic times. We had our record year in 2007 and this being 2010, we decided we needed to close the doors.
We are leading ourselves into bankruptcy because of a rough time. Someone recommended PFP. I called and contacted them. They called me back within an hour. It was incredible what they could offer us to save our building and our name and reputation. They came in and paid off our bank and protected us from creditors. PFP fulfilled everything we’d asked them to help us with: to help us with the bank, help us with our back ordered customers, and help us keep the reputation of the name with closing the business. They far exceeded all of those things. Not only did they preserve our name, but the community respected our closing.
Most of the people who came into our going out of business sale actually congratulated us on our sixty years and were very thankful that we were in this community. I don’t think this would have happened if we hadn’t found PFP, because we would have left on a bad note due to the money we owed to people and vendors. It was really nice to find a company like PFP. I would say that I would highly recommend PFP. Is it an easy road? No, but it was the best thing that could have ever happened to our store after sixty years of business so that we could leave on a great note in our community.
I really appreciate everything they did.
