After seven years in management for an appliance store in a chain that was sold; I had two brief employment stints with large chain stores.
The emphasis was more about selling warranties than product. I came to Plaza Appliance Mart in 1993. Bill Pleasants, Sr hired me even though he had just added another salesperson the previous week. Within a couple of years, I became manager of our South Blvd Location in Charlotte when the mgr transferred to our Contract Sales Department. We relocated to Pineville in 2001 and sales have doubled since that time.
Plaza, being a smaller, local dealer as opposed to a big box store, offers more personal service and is more attentive to an individual's needs. We would not be here if it weren't for our customers. I have been truly blessed over my career here and am grateful for the opportunity to serve others.
