Pennsylvania Retailer Wins Leggett & Platt Contest

Furniture World News on

Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group announced the winner of its High Point Market “Energized Performance” Weekend Getaway.

Jon Garber, owner of Valley Furniture and Mattress in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, will enjoy a weekend getaway with his wife, compliments of Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group.

“I’ve been a loyal Leggett & Platt customer for years,” said Garber. “I was excited when my longtime Leggett & Platt sales representative, Steve Bernstein, called me with the news that I’d won. I’ve never won anything before, and I’m looking forward to taking the vacation.”

“It’s a pleasant surprise to draw Jon’s name from the entries,” said Rob Woods, president of Leggett & Platt’s Consumer Products Group, the company’s retail arm in the bedding industry. “He has been a loyal customer for many years, and we are delighted to be able to reward a longtime customer like Jon.”

As one of Pennsylvania’s leading bedding retailers, Valley Furniture and Mattress offers a full line of Leggett & Platt sleep products and accessories. Last year, Valley Furniture and Mattress was one of the first stores to employ the Leggett & Platt® Retail Solution™ (LPRS), a turn-key marketing and merchandising program that helps retailers improve sales performance.

“Leggett & Platt Retail Solution has helped renew our business tremendously over the past year,” said Garber. “We’ve been in the furniture and bedding industry for years, but just recently opened Valley Furniture and Mattress, and we’ve had phenomenal results with LPRS. The program has helped us increase our sales by promoting sleep accessories like sheets, pillows and mattress protectors to bedding consumers.”

Garber entered to win the getaway while visiting Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group’s showroom at the High Point Market. “Overall, the Spring High Point Market was a huge success for us,” said Woods. “It was great to witness the renewed energy at the Market and see the buzz throughout our showroom as we met with many of our customers throughout the week.”

As a leader in the sleep industry, Leggett & Platt Consumer Products Group focused its Spring High Point Market message on bringing energy and optimism back to the retail sales floor. The drawing for a weekend getaway to “re-energize” was just one component of the rejuvenating showroom experience. Visitors to the showroom also enjoyed sensory experiences designed to refresh their spirit and learned new ideas to help them grow their business in the new economy. The company plans to continue its Energized Performance concept throughout 2010 to inspire more retailers to improve their retail performance.
