Mark Parrish, Bobs Furniture Gallery Transcription

This is a transcription of an audio testimonial. The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furnitur e Promotions did to assist them, what would you say?

Mark Parrish, Bob’s Furniture Gallery

This is Mark Parrish and I own Bob’s Furniture Gallery in Joplin, MO and we’ve been in business, it’s a family owned business, its four th generation. We have been in business for over 65 years. The reason we are getting out of furniture business is because the way the economy has been for about the last four years, the down turn in the economy and then the Tornado that hit Joplin in May 2011 really devastated this town.

What there building back right now and everything seems to be a lot of lower end of the furniture business then what I was in for the housing and stuff that is being rebuilt at this time. Having looked a few companies in this going out of business process the reason we chose Planned Furniture Promotions is because the response that I had gotten from listening to some salesman that had carried the lines that I was in to, feedback I had gotten from them that they had either done GOB’s in or had done just st ore promotions in and everything I heard about them was all good feedback.

I was approached by Tom Liddell of PFP came down and looked at my store a couple of times thought they could do us some good. When I finally made the decision to do it I was still pretty comprehensive on doing it because I had just never done anything like this in my life. I was well pleased with everything that they did from the beginning to the end. They were very professional people; they brought in the right sales people ……. The atmosphere like we had in this town I mean what was left of this town they did more than what could be expected. Because of that I appreciate PFP and what they did for me and my family.

Planned Furniture Promotions I would recommend to anyone in the furniture business that is thinking about going out of business or wants to run some large promotion that I feel like they are one of the finest companies out there for this job.
