It just dawned on us, here at the Massage Chair Relief showroom, that our store in Utah has been open for 1 year! Although we have been online for 4 years now, the brick and mortar store that many of you have visited, is now a year old. It has been a great year. We have put out some wonderful television commercials, we have been in all kinds of trade shows and golf tournaments, and we have made many, many friends in the community and around the country.
The massage chair business has been more than I could ever have imagined. We have met so many wonderful people and helped so many folks, like you, to feel better. This has been a business that many members of my family have become involved with, including my sweet wife, Mona. We absolutely love doing what we are doing….and we absolutely love that we have met so many great clients who came into our our store.
What can we expect for the next year? Well, I’m not sure, but I have a couple of ideas I plan on looking into. For example, we are seriously looking into opening another store. One thing I have learned over this last year is that there are not enough massage chairs on display around the country for people to try out. We get so many calls from shoppers just wanting to experience a massage chair before committing to buying it. A showroom is the way to do that.
I am also considering moving to a location where we have more walk-by traffic. We are in a good location, but our walk by traffic is virtually non-existent. Everyone comes in from finding us on the web or by seeing our commercial or through a friend’s referral. We just need to get more butts into our massage chair, and a busier store front would help. But, I sure don’t want to overextend us with an expensive space. Leasing can be very, very expensive. But, we’ll keep you posted!
Thank you for your fantastic patronage and support over the last 4 years. We love what we do and we truly appreciate our clients and visitors.
Hey, I just had a brilliant idea!! I should have some sort of an anniversary special. Since I can’t advertise any price discounts (the manufacturers don’t like that too much!), why don’t you send me an email to my personal email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and put the words “anniversary special” in the subject line and I will send you special offer on massage chairs. How does that sound? You can even leave your phone number in the email and I will call you and give you the info over the phone if that is what you want. But, send the email and I will have something special for my blog readers.
