Roman Relocates in Chicago
May 21, 2012,
CHICAGO-Gift and decorative accessories maker Roman will relocate its showroom in the Chicago Merchandise Mart to suite 13-600, located in the north-east corner of the 13th floor. The move comes at the request of the Mart, as it consolidates gift and seasonal permanent showrooms onto one floor.
"We were able to implement changes to our showrooms in other markets that greatly improved the display of our product," says Sally Murphy, director of merchandising at Roman. "While inconvenient, the move has allowed us to reassess every aspect of our Chicago showroom, from product displays to entertaining customers. We can make some positive changes to the layout and structure that will make the Chicago shopping experience much more enjoyable."
The Chicago Market takes place July 19-25.
