December 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // RALEIGH, NC – Blue Moon Estate Sales, the leading estate sales franchise in the country and pioneer of the new niche, continues its national expansion with the opening of its newest location in Pittsburgh.
Based in Pittsburgh, the new territory opened in December and marks the company’s second expansion initiative into Pennsylvania. The new location will serve the greater Pittsburgh area, including the counties of Allegheny, Butler, and Beaver.
Blue Moon of Pittsburgh will be owned and operated by husband-and-wife duo, Erica and Mark McLure. Prior to opening their Blue Moon Estate Sales location, the Pennsylvania natives held operational and sales roles respectively. After extensive careers in the corporate world, the pair was eager to bring their innate creativity and business acumen to their first personal business venture. Additionally, the couple will be the first Blue Moon Estate Sales franchisees to implement Blue Moon’s new customer recommendation technology into their business.
"This is an incredibly exciting time for our brand as we continue to expand throughout Pennsylvania,” said David Blue, co-founder and Vice President of Development for Blue Moon. "We’re excited for Erica and Mark to join the Blue Moon family, especially as we introduce new customer-facing recommendation technology, which will help tailor our customers’ shopping experience by suggesting items based on their purchase history.”
Blue Moon Estate Sales offers an extensive list of services provided during the liquidation process: from determining a convenient time line to sweeping up after the sale, Blue Moon also offers a complimentary and extensive evaluation of the home, appropriate pricing from antiques to everyday items, categorization and staging of the home, marketing, hosting and staffing of the sale. As an added bonus, Blue Moon brings a loyal fan base to every sale, which includes customers who will line up hours before the sale to be the first ones to enter the home.
The estate sale experts currently have 16 locations operating in 21 territories and the company plans call for having a total of 20 new locations open in 2017.
“We’re excited to embark on this journey together, especially during a period of rapid growth of the company,” said Erica. “We’re also looking forward to being the first Blue Moon franchisees to use this new technology. We believe what makes this company unique is that it maintains the authenticity of estate sales, but also modernizes a longstanding industry in a tech-focused age.”
