Husbands Must Bring Note From The Wife

Husbands must bring note from the wife

Husbands, please note. If you are choosing floor covering, you MUST bring a note from the wife!

So says this sign in the Surplus Warehouse that Paul Friederichsen from Brand Biz stopped in while traveling in Springdale, Arkansas.

Priceless and simply perfect, don't you think?

Paul writes:

"I stopped in a small closeout warehouse chain that sells odds and ends, as well as some assorted laminate and tile flooring. I spotted the sign hanging above the door and had to share. This says it all, doesn’t it?"

Surplus Warehouse, Springdale AKTo me it does.

But, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

What do you think?

Do you have other simply perfect examples of retailers who demonstrate that they understand their in-store customer dynamics?

Let me know.

Thanks, Paul!!

Would any one mind if we copied that sign and place it in our showroom too?

(And we will but a little note underneath it: you builder is not always right, you do know more than him ;-))

Absolutely! This is too priceless not to make the best use possible of it. Please send me a photo of your sign.

Jennifer, you got it! I love how focused you are on women in your showroom! Thanks for commenting.
