Home Furnishings Group to Open New Retailer Resource Center in Vegas

nahfa-logoLAS VEGAS-The North American Home Furnishings Association's new retailer resource center at World Market Center here promises expanded services and will hold a grand opening party during Las Vegas Market, which takes place next week. The group's new, larger showroom is located at B-1050.

"As the team at IMC moves forward with a gift and home strategy in building C, we recognized the benefit to both buyers and our vendor partners in moving to a larger showroom in building B," said

Sharron Bradley, CEO of the association. "The new showroom enhances our initiatives and provides a more efficient shopping experience for our customers and clients."

Visitors to the retail resource center will find the latest in technology, business-consulting services, financial solutions, operations support and much more, the association said. Complimentary seminars are scheduled throughout market week. "We have always found that any buyer who visits the RRC takes home invaluable information on doing better business," said Mary Frye, NAHFA's executive vice president. "Success is not just about inventory, it is about the entire operation, and that is why the retailer resource center has been an important part of markets for years. And of course, we love knowing how we can be of service to all retailers, so stop by, have some refreshments and let us know how we can help."

The grand opening party will be held Monday, July 29, from 4-6 p.m., and will be preceded by a ribbon cutting ceremony.
