“It’s our biggest event of the year. Our team preps for this show over several months. When the weekend arrives, it’s like Christmas for us! We enjoy spending time with our customers and seeing old friends. It’s a really fun weekend, and I couldn’t be prouder of how our stores look and all of the hard work our team puts in behind the scenes to make it happen,” said Smith.
“As Adam said, we are proud of how hard our team works to put this show together for the community each year. We are proud to be a locally owned small business in Paris with a wonderful community that surrounds us,” added Merison’s® general manager Meredith Boyd Leathers, “We offer affordable payment plans and free delivery within 50 miles because we believe that every customer deserves to have a comfortable home no matter the budget. We want to help customers achieve this.”
Merison’s® design consultants Cindy Lowe and Miranda Rial have been working on Showcase design and concept for several months.
“We want to create an atmosphere that is filled with creativity and inspiration for any customer who walks into our stores. We want our customers to leave with a feeling of excitement and to envision all of the possibilities for their home,” Lowe said.
Rial, who helps manage Merison’s® social media pages, said, “Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages! We are constantly working on new and creative ideas throughout the year.”
Merison’s® offers free design consultations. Their designers will even visit customers’ homes to measure rooms and consult on furniture placement, colors, and design.
“We love working with our customers to help them create rooms in their home that they treasure!” said Lowe.
Designers Lowe and Rial will be available during the showcase to consult about color, texture, and design for customers’ rooms, large or small and no matter the budget.
