Gwen and I had an unusual experience we wish to share with you....................
Today, Pindler and Pindler called to inform us that a client, called them with an "APPROVAL" for the fabric we had on "RESERVE" for this client and requested the yardage be sent to her.
Here is how WE work.........
Gwen: That is not how it works. Clients are supposed to tell us.......only.
Denise: Yes, FIRST, we take 100% deposit for fabric, tax and shipping from our clients.
Gwen: Upon receiving the money, we send a check to the show room.
Denise: Once a show room recieves OUR check, To-the-trade show rooms begins the process of shipping OUR order to OUR client's home or work room.
Gwen: Like all designers, we have built up a reputation of good standards, and any good show room will call us first.
Denise: NEVER will a To-the-trade take a call from our client and send out. Never.
Gwen: That is the reason for "Sidemark".
Denise: What Gwen is saying, "Sidemark" has the client's name........not our name.
