Mega Group Debuts Whirlpool Gallery
March 6, 2012,
Buying group Mega Group USA unveiled a Whirlpool Appliance Gallery at the Las Vegas Furniture Market.
This new gallery format gives furniture dealers the power to become a complete home furnishings resource to their customers, said Missy Hodges, Mega Group USA's appliance manager. "Similar to a gallery concept for furniture, it's a store within a store. It will bring customers into the stores more often."
Hodges said that the buying group is also considering adding small appliances to its mix.
Mega Group is a 1,600 member (2,500 store front) national home furnishings buying group of independent appliance, furniture, mattress, electronics, and lawn & garden retailers.
