Home Show: Visit Builders Surplus
Whether you’ve been in your home for years or you just moved in, a home show is a one stop shop for all your home improvement or project needs. The 2017 Rhode Island Home Show is right around the corner and guess what? Builders Surplus will be there!
This will be the second year Builders Surplus will be taking part in the annual home event. Last year was the very first time for us and it was a little overwhelming to say the least. We’ve been in business for over 25 years now and it was our first ever show experience.
We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was totally worth all the stress. The traffic flow was steady and sometimes extremely heavy, especially on Saturday and Sunday.
The Home Show is perfect for any homeowner, contractor, house-flipper, or do-it-yourself handyman. It’s even fun for people who just want something to do over the weekend. Innovative remodeling ideas and products abound. Some of the participating companies go all out with their displays. Last year, they actually built an entire tree-house inside the convention center. It was amazing!
A Home Show is Great for Networking
The Home Show is a great way to network with other local businesses as well as spread positive word of mouth about our company to new customers. There were a few people who had not heard of Builders Surplus before and like I said, we’ve been around for quite some time now. Some people were also confused by our name. I reassured them that just because “surplus” is in our name doesn’t mean we offer bottom of the line products. They questioned what we were about and what we had to offer, so exhibiting at the Home Show opened many new doors for us (no pun intended). And most folks were pleasantly surprised by the quality, selection and substantial savings of our products.
This year we decided to upgrade a bit. We will be in a bigger booth and we will be showcasing more of our products for potential new customers to look over. The Home Show is a great way to get your business out there. This show is a learning process for both customers and companies. It’s a great way to learn feedback about your company in many different ways.
