Sunpan joins First Tuesday
TORONTO – Sunpan has joined the High Point Showroom Association (HPSA) and its First Tuesday initiative, meanings its showroom in the Showplace building will be open to both retailers and designers year-round.
The contemporary furniture resource is one of four Canadian companies with permanent showrooms to join in the First Tuesday initiative, which was created in the wake of the ongoing restrictions imposed by COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. It was designed to create a safer environment for attending buyers and designers.
“This year, we had the opportunity to learn new ways to connect with our clients and found alternative measures to share access to our product,” company president and chief executive officer Sundeep Bagga said in a statement. “We understand the challenges our clients are facing while navigating local and international restrictions and as a result, launched a virtual tour of our High Point showroom. We have also made arrangements to keep our showroom open throughout the year by joining HPSA and First Tuesday.”
As a new member of the association, Sunpan will participate in events like Designer Day, occurring the second Wednesday of every month. Through events like these, the company’s sales team will be able to offer private appointments to the design community. The first scheduled event is on 02 December for the Designer Holiday Market.
The First Tuesday initiative aims to provide more purchasing opportunities to home furnishing buyers outside of market dates and will have its premiere on 01 December 2020 and will run until 03 December.
To ensure the safety of staff and guests, Bagga strongly recommends attendees make appointments to see the showroom by calling Sunpan sales associate Becky Newsome at (336) 239-6780 or by e-mail. The showroom is located in space 1200 of Showplace, in the heart of downtown High Point, North Carolina. COVID-19 related protocols will still be in place until further notice.
“High Point has become a destination for the design community beyond bi-annual market dates. We pressed forward to double our showroom space to 40,000 square feet and merchandise our latest and greatest designs,” said Bagga. “We are always working to find new ways to serve our clients conveniently and safely and I am thrilled that our High Point showroom is now open to customers year-round.”
For clients unable to attend High Point Market, a virtual tour of the new showroom is now available via the company’s web site, where product launches are also showcased.
Other Canadian furniture resources who are part of the First Tuesday initiative include Décor Rest (Plaza Suites 212); Magnussen Home Furnishings (IHFC M810); and, Palliser (220 Elm 400).
