When my husband Todd and I bought Duerden’s about 3 years ago it completely rocked my world. I had been a stay at home mom to my two girls and suddenly I was not only living and breathing appliances and mattresses, but I was learning how to be a business partner with my husband!
Throughout the years as we have needed to replace different appliances or mattresses in our homes, I’ve always dreaded the whole shopping experience . Appliances seemed like mysterious, EXPENSIVE pieces of equipment that I thought were boring. I didn’t care HOW they worked, I just needed to know that they DID work and that I could get the laundry done and whip up some mac & cheese in the least amount of time possible. I never felt like the salespeople cared about what I actually needed or knew enough to explain the products to me. And don’t get me started on mattresses! I knew I’d be dealing with a pushy salesperson who wanted to go on and on about coils and foam and then charge me WAY too much. But I gritted my teeth and endured those shopping trips, hoping that I wouldn’t have to do it again for another 10 years!
Now that I am on the other end of this scenario, I have learned a few things. As a wife and mom who actually does all the laundry and cooking in our home, and now as a retailer of appliances and mattresses, I know what is important to you. In this partnership Todd is the ultimate product expert and I am the one who will give you a woman’s perspective on how to make informed decisions about your appliances and mattresses. I’m excited to share what I have learned with you!
