Teppermans receive Lifetime Achievement Award
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, October 14, 2013
WINDSOR, Ontario - The Windsor & Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce has given its Lifetime Achievement Award to Bill & Rochelle Tepperman, the second generation leadership of the Tepperman's Furniture, an independent four-unit full-line furniture retailer based here.
In a statement, the company said the Teppermans have made service to the community an integral part of their life together.
"Community is what has supported our business and in turn we have a debt to our community, just like we have a debt to Canada," said Bill Tepperman. "Anybody can open a store; anybody can be a lawyer or a doctor. If you do it just to make money, that's not success. But to do it in a way where you treat every human being the way human beings deserve to be treated... that I believe is success."
