    March Madness For The Furniture Industry

    On March 17th we started with 68 teams all vying for the mythical national title and after this weekend we will be down to four remaining contenders. These teams had to play one game at a time to get here and not overlook any opponent. Otherwise there would not be upsets and all the number one seeds would be playing next week in Indianapolis. The NCAA March Madness is kind of a metaphor for work. In the case of a retail store for example it has to build its business one sale at a time. A rep has to build ...

    March has nothing on the Madness of Retail

    Industry dilemma: Consumers crave sleep but hate mattress shopping

    A thought-provoking presentation at the International Sleep Products Assn. Conference earlier this month shone a spotlight on an industry dilemma: Consumers crave sleep, but dread shopping for mattresses. Phil Johnston, senior vice president of the strategic services group at Marcus Thomas, accented the dreadful piece of that equation with two comments consumers made about mattress shopping. The first comment: “Everyone knows that buying a mattress is a treacherous affair, not unlike purchasing a kidney on the black market.” The second: “If you could keep me in your prayers.…” Sadly, there is some truth in those comments, although black market kidney ...
