ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Thomasville Furniture to pull prices from its Web site in order to help dealers promote more aggressively. The company started listing prices earlier in 2007, claiming that would help provide consumers with a more consistent shopping experience via its retail channels. Most of Thomasville's volume is said to be sold through its network of company- and dealer-owned stores, which number around 150 in major U.S. markets.
