Hey locals, we’ve got another episode of WOW! We’re Open Wednesday’s. This week we talk to a high touch retail store, Discount Mattress Lady, to find out how to keep your customers safe, doors open and the good times coming.
Lake Forest Shop & Dine partnered with Bob Ampe, Associate Broker with Coldwell Banker Realty, to go behind closed doors of Lake Forest’s small businesses to reveal neighborhood heroes, give exclusive discounts and showcase the Lake Forest Shop & Dine Experience! #LFWOW
Tune in every Wednesday on Bob Ampes Facebook Live for We’re Open Wednesday’s. Each week we will explore someplace new in our city bringing you real time content with real people.
Watch our first episode featuring a Lake Forest retailer: Discount Mattress Lady. We catch up with owner Karen Hughes to find out how a high touch retailer is keeping its doors open during Covid-19 and why Karen was named Top 4 Businesswomen in Lake Forest.
“You Spilled the Coffee!”
Karen doesn’t cry over spilt milk, errr coffee, she laughs it off. Karen comes from a corporate background and once she decided to become an entrepreneur it was clear why: she’s a people person and running her own business means she can laugh a lot more!
Walk into Discount Mattress Lady and Karen will have you talking in no time. A role reversal from male dominated sales, Karen takes away pressure tactics and lets you try your bed in store before committing. She didn’t even get mad when we started a pillow fight! She joined in!
