PAUL MICHAEL ROSA, ROSA’S FURNITURE TESTIMONIAL

This is a transcription of an audio testimonial given by….

Paul Michael Rosa, Operations, Rosa’s Home Stores, Buffalo, NY

The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furniture Promotions did to assist them, what would you say?

My name is Paul Michael Rosa. We ran the delivery service from world class delivery for PFP. I thought they were very professional, they did everything they were supposed to do, and worked in a very professional manner. Everything was coordinated with myself, and Jamie Guyan … personnel for PFP. We all worked together very well.

PFP took care of the Rosa’s customers as best that they could and held up to all promised made to the customers.

I would recommend PFP to anybody that’s having difficulty with their business. It’s a clean way to exit.


 

GRANT LOOSIER, ASHLEY FURNITURE TESTIMONIAL

My name is Grant Loosier, and I had an Ashley Homestore back in 2000, and did not perform well. Planned Furniture Promotions came in and ran a sale for me, and they were very professional, ethical people. They did a very good job.

During the sale, they helped me with some debt issues that I needed to try to resolve. They’re a very good company to work with. I was very impressed with them, and what they did for me and my company. I would recommend them to anyone in the industry that needs a good, professional company to come in and perform a sale with a lot of strengths behind them and some very intelligent people that actually run that company.

They know the business as well as anyone knows the business. I would recommend them to anyone out there who is looking for someone to run a sale whether it be a cash raising event or a closing event. Either one, they’re very good people to work with and will do well whomever that they perform for.


 

GILBERT WHITT, FURNITURE FACTORY WAREHOUSE TESTIMONIAL

This is a transcription of an audio testimonial given by….

Gilbert (Gibby) Whitt, Furniture Factory Warehouse, San Antonio, TX

The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furniture Promotions did to assist them, what would they say?

This is Gilbert Whitt with Furniture Factory Warehouse. I’m the operations manager for a company with thirteen locations based out of South Texas, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.

Planned Furniture Promotions was a company that we had decided to go with to help us through a time that we needed  help getting out of. They came in, from the get go, I noticed they were very professional and friendly people that worked well with myself and all my other staff. I was concerned in the beginning of how these people were going to interact with my existing staff and how they were going to be able to continue on throughout the remainder of the sale.

All my expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded, I believe. I really thought that Planned Furniture Promotions came in and really took care of us. They really accepted everybody and gave everybody a great opportunity to continue on during the sale. They did everything the said as far as merchandise, promoting it well….just the whole operation through and through, I thought, was a class act and a well run operation.

It was clear that they had done this many, many times and for years and years. Overall, if you have to go through something like I did, I definitely would recommend them.


 

CARMEN GONZALEZ, FURNITURE FACTORY WAREHOUSE TESTIMONIAL

This is a transcription of an audio testimonial given by….

Carmen Gonzalez, Furniture Factory Warehouse, San Antonio, TX

The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furniture Promotions did to assist them, what would you say?

Hi my name is Carmen Gonzalez, and I work at Furniture Factory Warehouse. PFP came in to help with the process of the liquidation sale. I work in the accounting department and with my experience with the PFP people coming in…they really helped to assure us and help us understand what the process was. We were kind of worried and scared as employees and as customers also…we were worried and scared of what the procedure was and how we were supposed to do things, and what was going to happen to us and everyone around us. So, PFP when they came in, they were really supportive, very helpful, very knowledgeable, they helped assure us that things were going to run smoothly, what was going to happen, the step by step. They were really nice to us, and they helped us understand the step by step. They never led us to believe that what they were saying was not going to happen. Everything they said happened as it was supposed to happen.

Every time I dealt with the accounting side of the business, it went smoothly. I didn’t have any problems with anybody. Everybody was being really helpful. I guess all the people in the admin side were professional and very prompt in their answers. I was never put aside. They always promptly answered my emails whenever I had a question, a doubt, whenever there were customers that had urgencies and questions…they were always there to help me answer the questions that I didn’t’ know how to answer or was fearful and didn’t know what to say.

I really appreciated PFP, because like I said they were very understanding and they actually helped all of us to soothe our fears because we were scared. We didn’t know what was going to happen to everybody and to the company as a whole.

I would definitely recommend them to others. There were a couple of people that I met during the sale that went above and beyond to help; to help me personally, because I was really kind of one of the last ones there. They really went above and beyond to help me understand, to keep on going, and to finish off what we needed to do.


 

DESHON HODGE, ASHYLEY HOME STORE TESTIMONIAL

This is a transcription of an audio testimonial given by…. DeShon Hodge, Ashley Furniture Home Stores (five), Raleigh, NC The question poised to PFP clients is: If another retailer called you to ask about what Planned Furniture Promotions did to assist them, what would you say? My name’s John Hodge. I was the owner of actually five former Ashley Furniture Homestores. We were looking to switch formats from the Ashley Furniture Homestore prototype to a new prototype. We interviewed several different liquidation companies. We ended up choosing Planned Furniture Promotions, because they came across with a very professional plan. They understand the augmenting of products. They have great buyers. They got us some really good deals to augment the sale. We ran the sale for about ninety days in closing the Ashley Furniture Homestores. All of the managers were extremely professional. They did a great job. The goal at the end of the sale was to come out with enough capital to start the new venture. They succeeded and actually hit our goals. We were very pleased. I would highly recommend Planned Furniture Promotions if you are looking to liquidate a store if you’re just looking to generate a sale that will generate capital. Very professional people.
