Powell is Heading Back to 1968
40th Anniversary Celebration Features Highlights from the Past Four Decades

Culver City, California - (March 25, 2008) - Case goods, accent and occasional furniture importer Powell Company is turning the clocks back to 1968 for its 40th anniversary cocktail party celebration on Monday April 7th at 4:00.

The party will feature heavy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a special anniversary cake, along with music from the past 40 years. Market staff will be in on the fun when they come dressed in attire from the 60s, 70s or 80s. Come enjoy a slideshow with images of Powell warehouses, furniture and catalogs throughout the decades, as well as photos of how many of the Powell faces you know and love looked in the past. Prizes for the party attendee who can match the most retro photos with real-life Powell team members!

“We’re proud to have been one of the top furniture importers in the country for the past 40 years,” said Sean Slack, executive vice president for Powell. “This party will be a fun way to celebrate that milestone, and we hope the industry will join us in marking how far we’ve all come in that time.”

Powell began celebrating its 40th anniversary at the Las Vegas Furniture Market in January, when it began a 40-week promotion of “Ruby Specials,” so called for the gemstone thatís traditional fare for a 40th anniversary. These specials are unprecedented “while they last” deals that are available only for one week and only through Powell Companyís innovative Powell Retailers Online program, or PowellPRO. The first Ruby Promotion was emailed to Powell’s existing customer database the week after the winter Las Vegas Furniture Market, and the last special will be valid the week of October 27th, which will be the beginning of the fall High Point Market. Slack said the Ruby Promotions have really caught on, with many retailers hungry each week to see what the latest steal is.

Established in 1968, Powell quickly grew to become one of the most recognized names in the furniture industry for home accent furniture. Since then, the company has expanded its capabilities as a home furnishings provider through its Powell Kids, Powell Limited, Powell Beds and Powell divisions. With offices in Southern California, North Carolina, Southern China, Cebu and Brazil, Powell continues to pursue its overseas operations to ensure that they source, service, quality inspect and ship top quality furniture products.
