While many of our businesses are often featured in the press, here are a couple of standouts this month. Congratulations Farmhouse Store, Blende Beauty and the Town of Westfield!
The Farmhouse Store owners, Ed Menapace and Bill Curtis, are featured in the August issue of RetailerNOW, the industry publication of the Home Furnishings Association (HFA). Ed Menapace joined the HFA in May of this year and attended their networking conference in San Antonio in June. The Farmhouse Store's unique approach and success in mixing furniture with gift sales made a big impression on the board members of the HFA; so much so that they wanted to know more. The owners were interviewed for the organization's magazine. The article about the beginnings and evolution of The Farmhouse Store can be found at www.retailernowmag.com/agents-of-change.
Blende is featured in The Beauty and Body issue of INDUSTRY Magazine
