"It fills a niche in the home improvement industry for trade professionals like builders, remodelers, installers, designers and realtors. The ProSource Showroom gives them a great private and professional atmosphere for doing business with their clients."

"I bought three ProSource showrooms in the area about three years ago. At other flooring stores, we seemed to be losing business with decorators, builders and remodelers when the big box stores came in. Being a ProSource franchise enabled us to regain a lot of that market share and gave us an opportunity to compete against these big box stores.
"As a single store, I don't have the wherewithal to handle all the IT issues, training, advertising and things like that. ProSource puts it together in one integrated package for me, and that's why I'm successful.
