QUINCY, Ill. – Melrose International, a wholesaler in giftware, holiday and home décor, is moving and expanding its showroom at the Las Vegas Market and expanding its Atlanta showroom.
“We have had such a great response to our showroom in Las Vegas over the years,” said Brad Gullion, vice president of sales and marketing. “We felt it was time to expand our presence and support our customers and sales force with more room and more product.”
For the Las Vegas Market, Jan. 23-27, Melrose will move to the sixth floor into room C-618 and increase its presence to more than 15,000 square feet. The company will also be expanding and remodeling its Atlanta holiday showroom.
“Sales and customer flows continue to grow at an incredible rate for us in Atlanta,” added Gullion. “We have needed a facelift in our room for some time and felt this expansion was the perfect time to do it.”
The expansion will feature more than 17,000 square feet of displays in the holiday showroom in Building One 17-C-11 and the remodel will premiere at the Atlanta Winter Market on Jan. 11.
The company has also brought on industry veteran Brandi Green as its new West Coast sales manager.
“Brandi is a great addition to the sales team and along with our new expanded Las Vegas showroom will really help with our growth on the West Coast,” said Rob Cohen, national sales manager.
Green grew up surrounded by the floral wholesale family business since her father was a salesman in the industry. After graduating from Weber State University she joined her father and worked alongside him. Green has also spent time working in roles focused on customer service, key accounts, design, purchasing and showroom management.
