Park Furniture & Appliances

“Our family has been in the furniture business in Pennsylvania for over 76 years. We hired Wahlquist Management Corporation to conduct a Store Closing event at our Altoona location. WMC liquidated our downtown location, which consisted of 50,000 square feet of showroom space spread across three buildings.

As far as running a sale of this magnitude, it would have been impossible to not only achieve our goals, but to exceed them without the services of Wahlquist Management Corporation.”

Travis Muccitelli, Owner

Goree's Furniture Express

“The employees of Wahlquist have been a joy to work with. They have become a part of our family. We will miss them considerably, and we will always remember each and every one of them.”

Sawyer Furniture

“Wahlquist manager was very professional and held true to Wahlquist’ promises to hold margins and advertising.”
“…keeping one location open and was very important to maintain our reputation in the community. This was handled with great professionalism.”

Usher Furniture

“I have had the pleasure of utilizing Wahlquist Management for two different types of sales.  One of the sales being a GOB and the other, a Retirement Sale. I am pleased to say that after each sale, I have been very happy with the outcome.
I would highly recommend Wahlquist Management Corp. to any Furniture Retailer, that wishes to do a High Impact Sale for cash flow purposes or Going out of Business.”

Sims Furniture Galleries

“The staff was very cautious to ensure that all invoices and special orders were done correctly. WMC has a very sound event program that I feel is fair to both parties…. The event operated exactly the way they presented it to me with no hidden surprises. In the 9-week period they have produced the equivalent of a year’s worth of business in this location.

Designers Furniture Market

This is not the first reference letter I have written for WMC. Over the past twenty-six years the Gatz family has written at least six reference letters for Wahlquist’ highly successful “Positive Impact” events at our Sherman, Texas location. WMC has always exceeded our expectations and we would never even consider another company.

When the building was sold in Marble Falls this summer and the closing of Designer’s Furniture Market was imminent, my first call was to my friend, Clay Wahlquist.

I attribute much of the success of the event to the WMC corporate office that put together an impressive and effective event advertising campaign bringing hundreds of buyers through our doors and their well-executed inventory plan allowing us to liquidate 100% of our merchandise at a guaranteed gross margin.

Phillips Furniture

“As you know, my big concern with a liquidator was how they would treat our customers in our transition from Phillips Furniture to an Ashley Furniture Home Store.  Your management and sales teams handled this beautifully and there was no loss of integrity.  I think what was most impressing to me was your ability to give a realistic sales goal and you actually hit your guaranteed margin.  Frankly, I was skeptical and almost considered running the event myself.  In hindsight, there was no way I could have achieved the results you did.”

Stephen Phillips 
Phillips Furniture
St. Louis, MO

Wayside Furniture

“I cannot say enough about the sales staff that was sent in for the sales event. They were professional, knowledgeable and courteous and integrated well with our staff.

I plan to use Wahlquist Management Corporation in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a quick and powerful cash infusion.”

Jay Cruse Owner

Eldon Furniture Company Inc.

“After making the decision to proceed with the sales event, the staff at Wahlquist was very easy to work with. We were in contact throughout the entire planning process and your staff followed up to make sure all details were being accomplished. Communication with Wahlquist management was very easy and professional. ……we were able to grow our market share and enhance consumer confidence.”

John Caine
Eldon Furniture Company Inc.
Eldon, MO

E. Baer & Sons Furniture & Mattress Center

“We talked about how hard it would be on me to close down my family business after 102 years and now everyone at Wahlquist made the transition so smooth and easy,

I can’t say enough about how involved the Wahlquist sales manager has been in running the sale. From tagging the merchandise to setting the floor to making sure every customer is happy, your sales manager is always there.

Clay – you know the numbers but I’m going to tell you about them again. In 13 weeks, E. Baer & Sons Furniture with Wahlquist Sales Plan and Team has generated the equivalent volume of sales with the same gross margin as our normal 52 weeks of business. We are walking away from our business with all our debts paid and a very nice bank account, thanks to Wahlquist.

I have used Wahlquist both for cash raising sales in the past and now for a store closing event and I can tell you that you will not find a more professional sales staging company out there. They work for you the store owner.”

Richard Baer

Midtown Furniture SUPERSTORE & Mattress Center

“Our goals have been exceeded. The product they brought in matched our local market. We were able to sell off about 85% of our product we no longer desired on our floor. In the eight weeks we ran the promotion, we averaged one month’s worth of sales each week. That is right, we sold a month’s worth of furniture every week.”

Woody Phichard President

Madison, NC

Parker Family LLC dba Thomasville Home Furnishings

“This is the second time we have used WMC. Once again, their company delivered what was promised. Their organization put our business first in the eye of the community.

The salespeople were well trained, friendly, and treated our customers with respect, while still maintaining a high closing rate. The management and sales staff made a special effort to protect our family name and reputation that we have worked so hard to gain over the last 50 years.

Our family has tried other companies, but none have been as successful as the events we have conducted with WMC.”

Craig Parker

Otis Home Center

“After 63 years, my family made the tough decision to close our furniture store.

I spent 18 months contacting companies. I made the decision and I signed a contract with Clay, which provided me with guarantees.

The manager was very professional, he sat with myself and my employees and explained what to expect and the best ways to adapt to the huge volume. We were still in control but they had the knowledge, expertise and experience.

The sales team fit in perfectly with our Eastern Tennessee crowds. When it was all over, they had far exceeded the projections and my profit margin ended higher than guaranteed.”

Philip Henard
Otis Home Center
Rogersville, TN

American Furniture

“The WMC selling system exceeded our expectations. In addition to the sales team that was provided, the advertising program WMC implemented created a new client base our remaining store can draw business from in the future. I would highly recommend Wahlquist Management to any owner.”

Robert Hahn

Nazareth, PA

G & G Furniture

“I have been in business for 64 years, but economic conditions left us no choice but to close our store. All of my vendors are paid and our store is empty. I consider these people not only my staff, but they have become like my extended family.”

Macon Ray Garrick
G & G Furniture
Orangeburg, SC

Engelberg’s Furniture

“Based on our previous sales figures, we did about 45 weeks of business in 8 weeks. It completely took the pressure off of me to turn the advertising portion over to them and not worry about it during the sale. They did everything they promised. I could never have completed a sale of this magnitude without them.

Rick Moore Owner

“I would like to convey my sincere appreciation of your help in our need to raise cash in a short amount of time. Our goals were greatly surpassed in the first four days of our ten-day sale… This is a small rural community.  I am amazed at the amount of late-night traffic that has been generated.

The sales crew has been superb. This sales team has worked together as a well-oiled machine. The sales floor has been an exhilarating theatre to watch.”

Bob Baggett

Comfortably Simple Furniture

“I had used Wahlquist Management three years ago to conduct a total liquidation sale so we could remodel our store.

We reopened and struggled for years, after a long hard fight to survive we made the decision to close our store. I spoke with other liquidation companies and after hearing what they wanted from us and how they were going to take over my business, I immediately called Clay Wahlquist and told him that the only way to do an event was with Wahlquist.

The sales figures were incredible, I never expected to do the kind of business we did. This was my second time using Wahlquist Management and I was satisfied beyond belief with the results. My store was closed and there was not one piece of furniture left at the end. Exactly what they promised.”

Brian Young

D. Noblin Furniture

“It was critical that D.  Noblin’s good name and reputation be upheld so that our main store, that remains open, can continue with the very best reputation.

Danny Gray, Owner

DeYoung & Sons Furniture

“To close a store after sixty-nine years is a painful decision to make. Thankfully, we chose Wahlquist Management Corporation. To say that we are overjoyed with the results of the sale would be an understatement. Our sales figures topped even their highest goal (even with our worst winter weather in over ten years). The most important result was that we maintained our integrity and standing in the community.

“We have been in our family business for over 31 years. I was hired by the Arkansas Home Furnishings Association as the Executive Director which required a move.

Randy Lann, Owner
