DirectBuy of Pinellas County Celebrates One Year of Member Service
Tampa, FL, July 08, 2008 --( Even though they’ve only been DirectBuy owners for one year now, Pete and Debbie Wisniewski have been DirectBuy members for more than 15 years.

As long-time DirectBuy members themselves, they understand and appreciate the benefits of a DirectBuy membership. They also have a tremendous amount of support in their new venture from both of their families.

Actually, Pete and Debbie are the second “Wisniewski” family to own a DirectBuy franchise. Pete’s brother, Philip, and sister-in-law, Suzanne, have owned the DirectBuy showroom in Edison, New Jersey, for over 20 years.

In fact, three generations of the family work in the Edison center. Pete and Debbie’s nephew, Peter, is the Sales Manager; his wife, Rachel, is the Office Manager; and their two great nieces, Tara and Kristi, work in the Service Department. While Pete and Debbie don’t have 3 generations working in Pinellas yet, they are happy to have their son, Nick, on the team.

DirectBuy of Pinellas County offers area residents thousands of items, including kitchen cabinets, flat-screen televisions, furniture, flooring and major appliances from more than 700 top manufacturers and their authorized suppliers. The 16,000 sq. foot showroom and adjacent warehouse are located at 8040 Bryan Dairy Road in Largo, Florida.

“DirectBuy of Pinellas County sets itself apart from traditional retailers by providing consumers with a low-cost, ‘one-stop shopping’ destination where they can furnish, decorate or remodel their home,” said owner Pete Wisniewski. “Members will enjoy personalized service as they navigate through our extensive selection of quality merchandise.”
