Capel Generates Strong Response To New Lines At Winter Markets
Business activity in the Capel Rugs showroom during the winter home furnishings markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas was brisk as retailers responded positively to new designs ranging from playful geometrics and outer space-inspired designs to eye-popping florals and elegant, nature-inspired patterns.
Capel enjoyed a particularly strong market in Atlanta January 13 to 16 with both attendance and sales showing solid increases from a year ago. The Las Vegas Market, which took place January 24 to 28, got off to a very robust start on opening day, but traffic grew a bit quieter during the week as many East Coast retailers struggled to make flights due to Winter Storm Jonas.
“Based on the response we got to our new introductions and other products we featured in Atlanta and Las Vegas, we’re very optimistic about our business prospects for 2016,” said Cameron Capel, vice president of national accounts. “We generated good business across the board, as retailers placed orders on a wide variety of new and current designs at both the promotional and higher price points.”
Capel added that the company’s success at the winter markets in Atlanta and Las Vegas builds on the major momentum it established at the October 2015 High Point Market.
“We are thrilled about the positive reactions we’ve been getting to all of our new designs at the past few markets,” Capel said. “Retailers are very excited about our latest design directions, they feel that we’re right on track with what consumers are looking for today for both their indoor and outdoor spaces.”
