After the long winter, we’re quite pleased to see that Summer has finally(!) arrived and business is on the upswing. Consumers are shaking off their cabin fever and we made sure our customers were ready for them with trend-right product introductions at both the winter and spring markets. Among the hits were the new color way additions to Connie’s Essentials line, including Marine Blue, Apple Green, Coral and Mellow Yellow, and lamp designer Becky Fletcher’s new lamps with her signature, embellished shades.
Our new distribution center and warehouse facilities in the Los Angeles area, which opened in January, are now coming fully online as well. We’ve operated out of four buildings in Tulsa for decades, so the IMAX team is energized to finally have our entire distribution facility located under one roof. We want to thank everyone for weathering the transition with patience and good humor. We’re all looking forward to more efficient operations, and we know you are too.
Just as exciting was the June 2nd grand opening of our new 10,000-square-foot showroom that our SO/CAL customers will enjoy access to on a daily basis. Of course, all of our customers are invited to shop the showroom anytime you are in the area, and we think it’s definitely worth seeing. For the first time ever our visual team was presented with a blank slate and the result is a refreshing, and idea-packed shopping experience that underscores the creative strengths that set IMAX apart in the marketplace.
