Fall Means HFA's Retail Resource Center at High Point Market

"During High Point Market HFA will present over two dozen educational seminars, including Jerry Epperson's State of the Industry report.

 

I love fall, the gathering of apples and squash, the weekend festivals and the chill in the air. Leaves are splashing mountainsides with reds, oranges and butterscotches. And, of course, pumpkin-spiced this and pumpkin-spiced that.

Oh, and High Point Market, of course. It’s hard for me to separate fall from High Point. After all these years, the two go together like college football and Saturdays. There’s nothing better than a crisp morning walk from showroom to showroom with all the new furniture and accessories waiting to be discovered.

I like to think the Home Furnishings Association’s Resource Center is as much a part of your discovery process as finding that best seller for your store. I love when retailers visit us on the first floor of Plaza Suites and discover everything our association has to offer.

That includes exclusive financing rates from HFA’s Buying Source, our free buying program with more than 40 manufacturers; exclusive insurance plans designed especially for furniture retailers, and so much more. While you are there, meet our concierge, who will help guide you in accessing all your industry association offers. Talk to our solution partners to learn about the many resources they provide to support you as you grow your business.

During Market, we present nearly two dozen educational seminars for you to discover new ideas and best practices – including our always-popular State of the Industry report by industry guru Jerry Epperson.

So, if you’re coming to High Point Market, please drop by and see us. Meet with some of our vendors, sit in on a seminar or connect with other retailers in the Resource Center’s café, which is open all day. We’d love to show you how your membership can easily pay for itself in ways you never dreamed. And if you see me at the Resource Center, introduce yourself. I’d love to tell you our story – over hot chocolate and marshmallows, of course.
