So here I was, unemployed, just into my 60’s, after working decades in store development for a number of household name companies. The last company I worked for was a deep discount, bricks & mortar, women’s & children’s clothing retailer that made some questionable development choices in recent times. They decided to re-examine their growth plans and, well, I was out on my butt. What to do?
I decided then and there, to start my own online selling emporium!!! Why not? If Colonel Sanders could start up Kentucky Fried Chicken at 62, why couldn’t I start my own little empire? I thought, I know how to build the damn physical stores, but for this I would need a techno geek. The search began. I was lucky enough to find someone who I had worked with in the past, and, who I could trust, implicitly. We were on our way!!!
Now, if there’s one thing I love to do, it’s research. Ask my wife. She says that I can spend hours trying to find the best deal on something, but I never seem to find 5 minutes to take out the trash. Bargain Hunting is kind of a passion of mine. I'm good at it, and, if I like saving money so much, other people probably do, too.
That’s what brings us here. Using my love of research, and passion for finding great prices, I wanted to pass that along to others. I’ve done the heavy lifting in quality and pricing, so our customers don’t have to. I know that time is important, and that saving a buck is always a priority to most folks. Put that together with great customer service, and that’s the kind of company my Dad always said he’d want to have. Dad always told me, “provide a fair product, at a fair price, for a fair profit, and you can’t go wrong”. That’s us. That’s what we're about. We hope you enjoy your experience at Boomer’s Department Stores.
