"Take the money and run? Not these people. They promised a broom-cleaned store and that’s what they delivered. They stayed until all inventory was gone, and even helped remove all business records. Even now they are open to questions, solving customer inquiries, and assisting with anything that arises.
I cannot end my comments without mention of the auction conducted after the sale under the supervision of PFP by Kurt Earlywine and his associates. What a well-tuned machine they bring to the table. I watched in amazement as Kurt worked and entertained the crowd. Everyone had fun. Clients were happy with their purchases, and, incredibly, we had made money."

"It was very sad for a downtown 52 year old business to close but we have, with your help, accomplished this with dignity and good repute and I will always be appreciative of your company and staff. We could have never done this by ourselves."
Patricia Mathis, President
"Customer service right to the very end. Our legacy is intact, and we thank you, Planned Furniture Promotions.
Now we are left with our buildings broom-clean, our integrity intact, and no added stress at the end of an era. We want to thank David Cosenza, Sr. and the PFP team for a job well done with the utmost integrity and professionalism."
AF Dawahare, President
"It was extremely important to me that my staff who had worked very hard for me for many years he included and taken care of during this sale. This was done very effectively and my people became part of the PFP team. This was probably the most gratifying part of the sale and as important to me as the success of the sale."

"It was an extremely difficult decision to close the Hitchcock stores. At nearly 200 years, Hitchcock is one of the oldest brands in the industry. As you know, because we intend to sell the brand after the sale of the furniture it was very important for us to protect our Intellectual Property and not damage the integrity of the brand during this event.
We did extensive due diligence in evaluating the firms that could represent Hitchcock during the most important sale of our company. I am glad that we selected PFP, and I am proud of the way PFP treated our employees, our customers and our brand. Hitchcock has employees with over 40 years of service and customers whose parents and grandparents own our products. Everyone, employees, customers and owners were happy with the results."

"In the final locking of the doors, we were treated with respect and as partners. Our respect from the community was kept intact, the courtesy towards our customers was continued and our employees were treated with compassion during a very emotional period.
Thank you all. I could not be more proud to endorse and recommend Planned Furniture Promotions to everyone for any sales promotion in their furniture."

"I have had a relationship with PFP for a long time and always recommended them and really no one else. I put my reputation on the line whenever I make recommendations and I feel I am doing my dealers a service recommending your company with people like you and Roy."

"Planned Furniture Promotions Inc. has earned my sincerest respect. Should you need a reference, don’t hesitate to give my phone number to a prospective store owner. Be assured that I will enthusiastically endorse your company. If I had known how positive an experience working with PFP was, I would have gone out of business years ago."
"Being a family owned and operated store for 87 years with a good reputation and living in the area, it was important to me to leave with the same good reputation.
When you came to talk with us, I was impressed with all the things you told us you would do like keeping our good reputation, respect for me, my son and son-in-law, work with honesty, do weekly reports, etc., and try to make our sale a success.
You did all those things and much more."

"I couldn’t be more impressed with the team of people you sent to represent Desava Furniture Mart as well as Planned Furniture Promotions. From the start, they took over the responsibility of running my store without undermining my authority as the owner. Each of them has gone out of their way to meet any need that I have brought to their attention. They have worked tirelessly and innovatively on my behalf to accomplish the successful liquidation of inventory while always being mindful to preserve the good reputation I have built in this community."

"I, Leonard Baer, President of Kline’s Furniture, would fully recommend them. In the four months of this closing sale there were never any misunderstandings. They are a professional group of people and would be a great asset to any business. They were truly like having more family members in our family owned business."
Leonard Baer, President
"As a company, I found Planned Furniture Promotions to be a great company. They did everything they said they would, and did it in a manner that maintained my family’s reputation in our community. With their help the closing of our store was a profitable success."
