    How someone doing everything ‘right’ can cost you a sale

    My wife and I purchased a new home recently and gradually have been buying new furniture. We’ve visited most of the local furniture stores and made a few purchases, some at a local brick and mortar and others via the Internet. On a recent trip to a local furniture store, we found a particular chair we liked in an outlet/clearance area of the store. (Full disclosure: I love a good value and am not averse to shopping closeouts on our preferred brands — and, yes, I shop by manufacturer brand as well as retailer) . Our goal was to find ...

    Sherman returns to stage with Restonic comeback

    The familiar voice on the other end of the phone had some big news for me: He was returning to the bedding industry. It had been three years since I last heard Bob Sherman’s voice, one of the most influential voices in the industry over the years, but one that had grown strangely silent. In case you don’t know, Bob Sherman has a storied history in the bedding industry. He spent 25 years at Serta and led that producer on a remarkable growth surge that saw that brand unseat No. 1 Sealy atop the bedding sales pyramid in ...
