"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.
To be a successful ProSource franchisee, I think it's important to stay involved in your business. That means not only being present in your showroom but also engaging with the training and everything that goes along with the system, so that you can understand how it works from the ground up."

"Thanks to the research and planning that goes into ProSource merchandising, I already know I'm going to have the widest selection and the best values. I don't have to spend time interviewing distributors about products, so I can focus on local networking to bring in more customers.
We're really high on ProSource exclusive brands, and we really believe in the value they provide to customers. We put these product lines front and center in every department and make sure that members know about them. They help our showroom and our members compete with the big box stores day in and day out."
