New Additions on Team National Factory Direct

Team National Factory Direct is excited to announce some new products now available on the website. This week we have added a whole new outdoor furniture vendor. Whether you are looking for traditional or contemporary, grand or space saving, we have everything you need to create a beautiful and stylish outdoor living space. See the new items in the Outdoor Living Section.

In addition we also launched a variety of iron board Cabinets that can be installed in your home. Wonderfully space saving, our selection of cabinets offer a wide range of features and each comes with an unfinished birch door, allowing them to be stained or painted to perfectly match your décor.  See this new category at www.tnfactorydirect.com in the Home improvement category.

Showroom Products

The New Team National Headquarters have provided TNFD with the chance (and the space) to have an eclectic and wide variety of furniture. We have every style from elegant sophistication to fun. One of our groups here at the showroom has developed the reputation as the most fun…

The Sketch-o-Rama youth bedroom The Sketch-o-Rama bedroom set has some cool features. Made entirely of dry erase material anyone can write on the surface wipe it off and start again. Another great feature is that the circles of colors can be changed, and pictures or fabric can be placed in the circles creating customized bedroom furniture.

At our showroom the group has been getting a lot of attention and it is becoming tradition that visiting IMDs (and even some of the staff) take time to sign the furniture.

                       

Hard at work on the New Showroom

Preparing for the Grand Opening was a hectic time for Team National Factory Direct but we had so much fun setting up our new showroom space. Below is a video that shows the hard work everyone put in to make sure that everything was ready for the big day

TNFD - Hard at Work

As the day to move into the new corporate headquarters approaches, Team National Factory Direct is hard at work making all the design decisions regarding the new building. The flooring choice is being made this week as well as the overall color scheme of the interior. Furnishings are being carefully selected not only for the new 12,000 square foot furniture showroom but for the offices and workstations as well.

In addition, Team National Factory Direct is busy picking selections that will appear at the National Convention in Kansas City. Remember that all products that we will be bringing will be available for purchase.

As always make sure that you check out the additions to the Team National Factory Direct website often.

Team National Saves Money on Freight

For 2010 FedEx Freight/National is increasing its pricing by over 5%. Chris, the Operations Manager of Team National Factory Direct met last week with our representative from FedEx Freight/National and confirmed that since we are the largest FedEx Freight/National customer in Southeastern Florida, that we will maintain our current pricing. We are proud to announce that our shipping costs for FedEx Freight/National will be locked in at our 2009 prices for 2010!

TNFD Suggestions.

Monday on Facebook Angela Chrysler asked for suggestions to help us reach a billion dollars. Team National Factory Direct would like to respond to several good suggestions that were posted.

The first suggestion is that Team National Factory Direct provides more detail and more images for the products we offer. We rely on the furniture manufacturers to provide us with all descriptions and product images and we put that information online.  Some of the companies do a better job of photographing and describing their products than others.  This is one of the main reasons we invested and will continue to invest in our Video Library.  We are building a studio at our new facility so we can shoot video on more and more collections of furniture.  However, if you have a specific question about a piece of furniture please contact our customer service department at 800-227-6030 ext 404.

The second suggestion involved including appliances in Team National Factory Direct, the distribution channel for appliances in some states are different than with furniture. Appliances are sold in those states to an exclusive distributor who then sells them to dealers. Because of this way of distribution it they would not be direct from the factory and the savings would not be as significant as we are able to achieve with furniture.

The third suggestion was about offering cabinets through Team National Factory Direct. We have looked into this and the reason we have not moved forward with it is that we cannot at this time find a way to uphold our return policy with cabinets. Because Cabinets need precise measurements for installation and most cabinet companies will not accept returns, at this time, we feel we cannot provide the positive customer service we would like to for this product.

We appreciate all the suggestions we received. Thank you!
