I spend at least one afternoon a week shopping typical finished furniture stores, as a customer, in a variety of towns I travel through. It always amazes me what type of sales people I run into and the "pitch" they present. Every time I have an episode with a "typical" salesperson I think of our Wood You customers and what they have to endure in this industry's maze of confusion and downright comical interactions. I often use these scenarios as personal motivation in maintaining our company's ideology and as teaching points with our employees as how we do not want to be perceived.
"I Can Sell Ice To An Eskimo!"
So I thought I'd turn it over to you the reader and see if you have had a recent shopping experience with a salesperson (furniture or any other retail store) that would either make us all chuckle or shake our head in dismay. So let us hear from you! I personally will be turning my employees onto this post as a reminder as to why we work so hard to treat our customers the way we do!
No wonder first time customers come into our stores, a bit timid, waiting to be pounced with over used cliches and weak sales tactics . . . then over the next few minutes they recognize the difference in Wood You Furniture's focus and intention with you the customer. I have been blessed to get to know the majority of individuals within our company. Although not perfect, I sure am proud to be associated with this company and it's ideology of education over sales and sincere customer assistance over high pressure sales.
So if you have ever run into this gentleman in the blog above let us hear about it. I look forward to hearing your story as well as sharing a few I have run into over time!
