Ashley Furnishings Sells its own furniture.
When Ashley has a big sale, she likes to sell a few pieces at a time.
But sometimes the company just wants to take a look at its inventory.
When that happens, it’s like having an audience in the store, she said.
“It’s very, very different than, you know, being a retail person.
You’re kind of just kind of doing it on your own,” she said, laughing.
The company is a small company with a few employees and no real financial clout.
But its customers and staff are really excited about the new merchandise they see in stores.
The new items are designed for women.
Ashley said her daughter was “overwhelmed” with the assortment.
And that was a good thing.
The company hopes to make some big waves in the retail industry, she added.
