Happy Holidays! As we reflect on the past year, there is much to be grateful for here at AWM. We have had numerous fellowship and networking events with our peers and the opportunity to support DREAM Fund with fundraising efforts. I would like to take this time to thank you for your support and to thank our Board for their dedication and commitment throughout the year. Without them, all we do would not be possible.
Luncheon Program: Wednesday, January 28
Nebraska Furniture Mart Enters the Top 5 Media Market
We've heard the commercials and know about this brand new, huge furniture store coming to the area, so find out what all the talk is about at our January lunch program featuring Ed Lipsett from Nebraska Furniture Mart.
Ed has been with NFM since 1998 and currently oversees the new Nebraska Furniture Mart of Texas, which will be the largest home furnishing store in the world. Ed has worked in each of the Nebraska Furniture Mart locations, and holds his Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources Management...but also has worked in the retail management, sales, merchandising, loss prevention and operations.
Ed will cover a "History" of sorts of Nebraska Furniture Mart and offer his thoughts on entering the very competitive DFW furniture market, and their first opportunity in a Top 10 media market. He will also offer insights into Grandscape, the unique urban development concept in The Colony that is being developed by Nebraska Furniture Mart.
