February 1, 2007

The International Builders’ Show (IBS) is a little bit different than your typical CE show. Right next to an impressive home control demonstration you might find a nail-driving competition.

Just as the independent retailers of audio/video learned long-ago, appliance dealers are increasingly catering to upscale tastes, a practice that can give the dealer an advantage over the national chains.
