We're making a big push on TV to let the customers know that we have Wayne Pumps (on sale price) for the upcoming flood emergency. As I said earlier this week, Wayne Pumps is a great supplier of pumps due to their reliability, price and warranty. Our thought for running these ads is that we are the first place a customer thinks of when they need a pump.
Here's a commercial we did some time ago about what makes Home of Economy Home Furnishings different. These are all great reasons. Of course when it comes down to it, you should be buying your furniture because of the quality you're getting. Certainly the furniture from our Amish Gallery can't be beat. We also have great brands like Action Lane, Flexsteel, Riverside and many others. Our competitors are going the other way focusing on no-name furniture they directly import from China.


Yesterday our factory representative from Forney Industries was in the Grand Forks store. They are our supplier for a good deal of our welding supplies. To make a long story short, Forney has almost 15,000 stores that they are in. Home of Economy had two stores in the top 100. Grand Forks was actually the 28th biggest store in the US and Canada going by product shipped into the store. Minot was number 75. Grand Forks has done a good job with the line for quite a while. Minot has been able to bring themselves up to that level in under two years. When you consider that our populations are fairly small in North Dakota I think this is an awesome achievement. Of course we didn't do it alone. Forney is a great product line. We get great support from Monty and the rest of them at the company.
