    Cross merchandising at its best.

    When I was younger I wanted to open a place called “Rydelly’s Deli and Aircraft Parts”. It would have been a big hit.

    Yes, our commercial accounts that don’t maintain them, we do. Of course we also furnish vacs.

    I love it when they make sure the vac is out in plain sight, as if they actually use it!!

    And, I have spent longer unclogging them a few times than cleaning their "regularly vacumed" carpet. !!! :biggrin:

    I tried selling this model. It’s light, powerful for the homeowner’s needs, no filters, quiet, has a cool light, and has attractive colors for the soccer Mom not to freak out if the guests see it

    You’d think that if the person who takes care of your carpet suggests a certain model, than you’d take his opinion seriously. Obviously I failed.

    But I’m a terrible vacuum salesman. This picture and some jibber jabber is still on my Facebook page.

    I carried that vacuum on the truck with me and used it as a demo for people that I felt I could sell it to. They just weren't attracted to it. I don't know if the dyson was the flavor of the month or I was just a crappy vacuum salesman. I just didn't have that RA vacuum salesman in me, like you do.:clap:

    People are more likely to take a recommendation if it’s not a sales pitch.
