DirectBuy of Savannah Hosted Grand Opening Celebration
Savannah, FL, July 16, 2008 --( DirectBuy, the leading members-only showroom and home design center that offers merchandise at manufacturer-direct prices, opened a new full-service design showroom in Pooler, Georgia, located at 1212 East Highway 80, Suite 400. To celebrate the opening, DirectBuy of Savannah hosted a reception in their new 9,600 sq. foot showroom.

DirectBuy enables consumers to purchase brand-name merchandise – including kitchen cabinets, home furnishings, appliances, flooring, lighting, and much, much more -- at members-only, manufacturer-direct prices. By providing merchandise without traditional retail markup, DirectBuy dramatically increases the purchasing power of its members, enabling them to enjoy the home of their dreams.

Not only is DirectBuy of Savannah committed to helping families in the area live and buy better, but Savannah natives Troy and Michelle also wanted to help give back to the community. That’s why they chose Savannah’s very own Star Fish Café to cater the event. Star Fish Café, although known for its delicious cuisine, has gained national recognition for training low-income and homeless individuals in their culinary art program. The Star Fish Café is a joint venture between Union Mission and the Savannah Technical College. Since it’s opening in 2001, hundreds of Starfish Café graduates are now working in the food services industry in Savannah and able to support themselves.

“When I started planning our grand opening, I knew right away that I wanted Star Fish Café to cater our event,” said Michelle. “Not only do they serve unbelievable food, but we believe in their concept and really want to make a contribution to help support their students.”

To assist members with their home renovation projects, DirectBuy employs interior designers and product specialists who are specially trained in one of five areas of merchandise: Home Furnishing, Home Improvement, Flooring, Accessories, and Entertainment/Outdoor.

DirectBuy members also have access to renowned designer Christopher Lowell. Lowell has designed twelve room settings – created exclusively with products available through DirectBuy – using his Seven Layers of Design method. An innovative approach to home décor, The Seven Layers of Design keep homeowners on budget and from feeling overwhelmed by their projects.

“DirectBuy has offered its members unmatched savings, selection and service for the past 35 years, and we are excited to bring that tradition to residents in and around the community of Savannah,” said Bart Fesperman, vice president of sales and marketing for DirectBuy. “We offer the top home furnishings and home improvement brands at discounted prices that consumers will not find anywhere else.
