GWIN LANDRY TRANSCRIPTION
This is a transcription of an audio testimonial given by .... Gwendolyn (Gwin) Landry Director of Stores, Homestead House Furnishings, Cle and 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?
My name is Gwendolyn Landry. I was formerly the director of stores for Homestead House, Home Furnishingsin Southern Califonia, which comprised of five stores in Southem Califonia, one store in El Paso and in a ddition to thatthere were three stores in Colorado. The owner o f my company decided thatit was time to retire. When he made that decision, we as a group sat down with several promotioncompanies, and it was very quickly determined that Planned Furniture Promotions would bring to the table the right personnel and the ability to run a successfd event. What quickly showed up was that they sent =extremely talented group o f people who were prepared to work with my staff (both in store and in vrarehouse) in a way that gave the people that I helped their dignity. The expectation of the event was exceeded. I cannot speak to the professionalism o f the people involved, the ability to watch a group o f people come together in such a short amorrt o f time and create a beautiful working environment, such that the owner of my company who had beenin furniture for over fifty years...he was extremely pleased. In terms o f the financial end o f it, no one was left out. Employees had the opporlimity to make money andto continue lithe arena they were comfortable in. Certainly my managemen staffwas partneredwith the management teamthat was brought in by PFP. I was so pleased with the experience that for the past five years, I have joined the PFP management teamand can't imagine doing anything else. It allows me to stay in furniture, which is what I've been doing for thirty years, to meet incredible people, to go into situations that are less than perfect andto make thenwhole...whether it's to influence a newway o f thinking, to create an influx of a Emandal correction that needs to be made, or to simply allowpeople the dignity to bring something to an end that needs to come to an end.
