Formerly Pope's Hobbyland Wausau,WI Dear Merchant, After 50 years in business we decided to have a Retirement/Closing Sale. We had heard and witnessed a closing sale done by DWS Retail Sales, Inc.. We made the call and talked to Mr. Del Stortzum, the owner. He answered all our questions on the phone and sent a packet to us in the mail. We wanted the sale to start as soon as possible. DWS had a plan, calendar time table and a consultant ready to arrive in one week. Jerry took care of everything and all we had to do was greet and be interviewed by TV and newspaper journalists. Free advertising on news hour programming, honoring Pope’s Hobbyland 50 years run. Jerry handled all fixtures and shelving sales. We said thank you and greeted our customers for the last shopping spree. The sales were great and fast. We highly recommend DWS to handle your sale with confidence and trust. Thanks DWS!!!

Formerly MILLER TRUE VALUE HARDWARE 616 Market Street Danville, Ohio 43014 A huge “Thank You” for a very memorable successful “Retirement Sale”! Keith and I wanted to retire, needed to retire, but both of us were scared to death. Del came over to our hardware store, fighting traffic on the Fourth of July weekend. He was full of great ideas, took hundreds of pictures, a lot of morale support and much more. I called Del many times for professional advice and a lot of personal caring too! A few weeks later, Jerry appeared for almost 2 months of hard work. We thought it would be total chaos, but “Jerry knew everything”! After 5 days of preparation, “it all broke loose”. Jerry wrote all the advertisements for the newspapers, radio and handouts. He knew what percentage to do when, he just knew everything. Jerry arranged merchandise for the best sale and did the “dirty work” of taking bids for large displays, shelving, machinery, etc.. We reached our monetary goal, plus MORE! It all ended so perfect! Jerry was impressed with the love and caring among our employees. He will always remember our “group love hugs” at the end of every day. We will never forget Jerry and we are sure he will never forget the Miller’s at Danville, Ohio and group love hugs. God Bless and thank you so very much! 2 weeks after closing, a surprise retirement party for us was attended by almost everyone in and around Danville. UNFORGETTABLE!

I knew that I did not know how to execute a liquidation sale so I hired DWS. After the sale I have the following thoughts to pass on to others. • Once the sale begins it is important to keep the community excited about coming in and buying. I saw Jerry in action to keep things moving. Daily sales slowed and he knew when to take action and what action to take to keep momentum and maximize sales. • When we as owners enter into a liquidation we know all about selling our product, but not liquidation. We do not know what we do not know! Having a leader who has personally done liquidations fifty times before me makes things go smoothly and in a predictable time frame. If the schedule would have not been met then I would have had large financial consequences. It is hard to imagine what could go wrong until you have brushed past it obstacles with a huge sigh of relief. • We as owners do not take into account our emotions that will be involved in destroying a store that we have tried so hard to make work. Also our employees have the same feeling of loss. We all have to think of our financial futures. These emotions clutter our ability to be at our sharpest during the liquidation. • What about fatigue? This is a time when we have never worked harder physically. We hurt in the evenings and have to sustain this for 30-45 days. This further affects our ability to do something new like a liquidation. • I had a full time job before the liquidation began! Not to mention family! Having Jerry onsite every day enabled me to do what I had to and not worry about pushing daily sales. I helped all I could but I did not have an extra 50 hours per week to “be a working leader” of the sale. I never thought of the constant re-set involved in making the remaining items sellable. In summary, I am extremely thankful for DWS. It was perhaps the best money I ever spent in retailing. Paul HarwoodPaul Harwood- Adamsville Hardware
