DirectBuy of Edmonton Tops Network for Member Purchases

DirectBuy showroom in Edmonton recognized as top performing club out of 130+ showrooms throughout Canada and the United States.

Merrillville, IN, July 23, 2011 --( DirectBuy, the leading members-only showroom and home design centre that offers merchandise direct from manufacturers and their authorized suppliers, is proud to announce that franchise owners Doug and Diane Clarke recently were the recipients of the highest honour for merchandise volume awarded to franchisees – Merchandise Club of the Year.

“Our members purchased more than 24 million dollars in merchandise last year through DirectBuy,” said owner Doug Clarke. “That type of volume speaks to the tremendous value DirectBuy offers. The savings our members experienced on their purchases, even if estimated conservatively, means 6 million dollars our members were able to collectively keep in their bank accounts and not give away in the form of retail markup.”

DirectBuy clubs had the opportunity to qualify for the company’s most prestigious merchandise volume award based on their monthly and annual merchandise sales volume during a 12-month qualification period. DirectBuy of Edmonton topped all clubs with more than $24 million dollars in member merchandise purchases.

For this achievement, DirectBuy of Edmonton received on-stage recognition at DirectBuy’s International Sales & Service Conference, a plaque commemorating their success, and acknowledgment in BuyLines – the company’s network wide newsletter.

“Our showroom is always busy, and that’s the way we like it,” Diane Clarke added. “It is truly rewarding to see the hard work and dedication of our service staff pay off with recognition as Merchandise Club of the Year.”

Doug and Diane Clark own and operate the 27,000 sq. foot showroom DirectBuy of Edmonton, conveniently located at 10833 – 178th Street NW in Edmonton, AB. DirectBuy offers consumers a comfortable, welcoming setting and design centre where they finally have the financial control of buying direct.
