Chattanooga, Tenn.CarpetsPlus Colortile recently held its third annual buying committee meeting at the Holiday Inn Downtown, here, Nov. 1-4. The committee acts as an advisory council working with executive management to cast the vision and forge the path forward for the group into 2017.

Ten member stores were in attendance this year with 12 total representatives from those stores. Member Missy Montgomery, Montgomery’s CarpetsPlus in Venice, Fla., was happy with the way things played out. “I feel the representation of this year’s committee was very diverse. We did a good job of representing everyone from the smallest of companies to the largest and I believe the decisions made will benefit all.”

Four main objectives were presented on Tuesday morning to begin the event. Key action items included roll and pallet stocking program strategies as well as product and merchandising plans for 2017. As in years past, select suppliers presented their new introductions, answered questions and discussed plans for the future.

The group reviewed new products and special buys as well as discussed 2017 strategies as the suppliers presented their products. Their last day was spent discussing and reviewing new 2017 proposed merchandising. They saw carpet and hard surface displays and provided feedback for display improvements.
