Dear Midwest Furniture Club Members,
As we begin the 2023 year, we look at the past three years as a blur. I think we can all say that we do not want to go back to the days of unreliable supply chain and the unknown of business. Many retailers backed away from their normal marketing routine but now in 2023 we see it coming back full force and then some. As I travel the Chicagoland area territory, I notice that the retailers who are marketing the same or more pre-pandemic are keeping orders coming in steadily. We are in a tough time that some say may be tougher than 2008. What we do know is we all have to put in the hard work now more than ever to gain our share of the business. The Midwest Furniture Club is an integral part of keeping the relationships with the manufacturers and retailer strong. Our club also offers a way to feel connected to a family outside your own. Now that those three years are behind us, we look forward to growing our membership and relationships with our furniture family. We are focused on bringing more events to the marketplace to engage and entangle with one another.
There are many benefits to joining our club. We are a local chapter of IHFRA, we receive all their benefits including discounts on travel, clothing, cellphone, office supplies, printing, and shipping. As well as legal advice, job postings, insurance programs and other services. We have plans for social events and our infamous Midwest Furniture Show in September.
Please consider joining our club and growing your furniture family.
