Calling all university students

Following is a letter from the founder of Groovy Stuff home furnishings.

For those of you that are keeping up with our student project with The Appalachian State University I would like to include you on an additional initiative that has snowballed since the recent High Point Market.  We are establishing a University Hall at all the major markets across the country so that young professionals have a place to display their work and ultimately find a reason to join and employ themselves in the Home Furnishings Industry of America.  We are currently reaching out to all the universities from around the country that offer programs that would benefit our industry.  And we can use your help! 

Our ultimate goal is to publish this list to the industry so that Retailers, Designers, Hospitality and Contract professionals, and Manufacturers and from all walks of the industry can reach out to whatever program is closest to them and employ these programs to benefit their companies and communities.

Please let us know if there are universities or programs that you would like to include in this initiative for all.  Ultimately the name of the school or organization, the program they are running, and the contact name, phone number and e-mail address are what we are looking for.  So please lend a hand to the industry if you have time and let us know who you is in your neighborhood!

Below is the link below for the Channel 14 news story that is currently running in North Carolina.

Our goal as a company is to modernize our traditional rustic home furnishings into a more modern look.  This has expanded into an industry wide contribution from coast to coast.  We are in the process of opening up several University Halls at the various markets across the country to include graduating students seeking employment in the home furnishings industry.  More details on this when we visit.

I am looking forward to working with you, the professors, and most importantly the students from around the country to include them in our University Hall Initiative the Spring!

Kind Regards,

Chris Bruning
