Merison's Showcase planned March 16 & 17
Merison’s® Furniture will host its 6th annual shopping event, with a location change for 2018. The Merison’s Showcase 2018, planned during store hours from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, March 16, and Saturday, March 17, will be held at the two Paris stores simultaneously. Admission is free to the public.
Merison’s® will showcase the latest trends in home furnishings, including bedroom groups, living room groups, dining groups, home accessories, rugs, and clearance items. Door Buster specials are good these two days only, so don’t miss out!
“The ‘Home Show’ originated due to our flagship store being a mere 5,000 square foot large. The ‘Home Show’ gave the company a way to ‘showcase’ the multitude of items that we could offer to the public beyond what we could show on a daily basis,” said Laura Dougherty, PMB Services Marketing Director and Event Coordinator.
“It was highly successful and served a great purpose. And then just a mere few weeks after the show last year, we opened Merison’s® Home Furnishings on the Camden Highway giving us two locations to serve the public in Paris, Tennessee. We now have more than 15,000 square feet of combined space with this new location,” Mrs. Dougherty said.
“The ultimate goal of the show is to get people into our stores. With that being said we are trying something new! The show will have a new name, ‘Merison’s Showcase,’ and it will be held within the walls of our two Paris stores. So mark your calendars for March 16-17, 2018. You will not want to miss it,” she said.
A few of our regular vendors will return to showcase their wares, with booths set up inside Merison’s® Home Furnishings at 307 Fairview St. at the corner of the Camden Highway 641 South. Heather’s Street Food will be selling from her food truck set up on the Eagle Buildings lot next to Merison’s® Value Furniture at 202 Memorial Dr., across from Lowe’s.
Vendors include: LuLaRoe, The Silver Chics, Tupperware, Perfectly Posh, Pampered Chef, Wood Works, Younique, and Breathe Easy.
Meredith Boyd Leathers, Merison’s® general manager, said giveaways include more than $10,000 in prizes.
“Each store will have its own unique giveaways. Prizes include a free Carnival Cruise, valued at $1,000; $3,000 in Ashley Furniture (three prizes: $1,500, $1,000, & $500 in furniture); a Bassett Everest reclining sofa and loveseat, valued at $4400; a 70-inch TV, valued at $1,900; and more! Each vendor will give away a door prize valued at $25 throughout the day. You must be 18 years old to win,” Mrs. Leathers said.
“However, to be eligible for the free vacation and Ashley furniture prizes, you must get a punch card from either Paris store and have it punched at both stores,” Mrs. Leathers said.
Ashley, Tempur-Pedic and Sealy company representatives will be on site to answer questions about their brands, including quality, materials, price, warranty and more.
Local Merison’s® Design Consultants Cindy Lowe and Miranda Rial will be available to offer suggestions about color, texture, and design for your rooms, large or small. During the showcase, anyone who schedules a design consultation for a later date will receive 20 percent off of their custom Bassett order.
