ABSTRACT
The article focuses on best idea contests, one on advertising and marketing,and the other on operations at the Furniture Marketing Group Inc.'s annual symposium held at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Becker Furniture World was investing too much time deluxing closeouts, and too much of it was being returned. The company developed a form listing defects, which purchasing customers sign, acknowledging the imperfections. Kammer Furniture has developed a checklist for visiting reps, spelling out the store's expectations for product training. To pump up business during normally dreary December, Value City Furniture, promoted a $100 giveaway in accessories for each $699 item purchased.
