We Are Retiring At Charter House

0 Comment

After 42 years in business,we have made the difficult decision to retire due to health issues. Starting immediately, all regular priced items in the store is 35% off. This includes indoor and outdoor furniture, art, carpets, lighting, and home decor. Christmas decorations and decor is 50-70% off. We hope to have it all wrapped up by the end of March.

We want to thank all our customers over the years and those who have come into the store this past week to wish us well and say how much we will be missed. That is truly heartwarming. (I think they came by to visit Griz, our store dog).

Thank you especially to our dedicated staff who will be retiring with us, Mona and Bill. Employees like these two do not come along very often. They have come in early, stayed late, cleaned messes, loaded vehicles, unloaded trucks, shoveled snow, worked endless hours at trade shows and came in on short notice when we have needed them. Their customer service skills are first class.

I would also like to give a huge thank you to two long term former employees Scott and Paul. They were dedicated, worked hard, did all the jobs listed above, and had excellent customer service skills. We still keep in touch with both of them; that says something about our relationship.

Over the years we have had many friends and family volunteer their time at trade shows, open houses and now for our retirement sale. Many thanks to Nancy, Karen, Betty, Warren, Evan, Al, Shannon and Connie.

We will miss our truck drivers and delivery people. Hats off to anyone who has ever had to back a truck into our narrow driveway.

We will miss all our sales reps and advertising people especially Jeff Hayes who made our day a bit brighter just by popping in.

We have no Plan A, Plan B or Plan C after retirement. Like most things in our lives, we are going to ‘wing it’.
