And with the convenience of the “Dealer Locator,” a consumer can use our Web site to find a product she likes, measure her room to see if it will fit, and then find the nearest retailer who carries it. That means walking into one of our dealer stores already educated and sold on the product. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
