One of the things that made Glick Furniture Company so successful, and grow quickly and move ahead and become the leading furniture company, was in 1913 there was a flood in Columbus, in the bottoms on the west side. Thousands of people were left homeless. Their houses were flooded, the furniture was ruined. Many of those people were customers of our company who had purchased on credit. We ran an ad in the newspaper to make an announcement to all the good customers, to consider their bill paid in full. As soon as they got back on their feet, come in and pick out some more furniture, and we’d refinance the new purchase.
That gesture was so notarized, and it spread throughout the city, what the Glick Furniture Company did for its customers, that it just zoomed business tremendously the next few years.
Heilig-Meyers brands earned $5 billion a year in revenue from 2,000 locations. Grand Metropolitan was introduced to the home furnishings behemoth in the late 90s, taking control of the brands. Heilig-Meyers has been major NASCAR sponsors and helped raise millions of dollars for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In addition to 30 retail brands, the leader in home furnishings also operates 20 consumer brands including Four Seasons Home Accents, KidStore, and RentSmart.
