We have a new concept in Boise, Idaho. The Treasure Valley(Caldwell, Nampa, Boise,Idaho area) is our main supply point here in Jordan Valley. Nampa is closest at 62 miles and Boise is 85. Jim Sparling came up with the idea of having a constantly running home show in a permenant location, open 7 days per week. The displays are unmanned and customers can view at their own speed without interuption. Each customer is given a sheet on which they list name, phone, address and other information. On the back is a list of all the exhibitors. The customer marks displays that he wishes to know more about and returns the sheet to the desk where he receives brochures and other information about the display. A copy of that sheet is then e-mailed to the exhibitor for follow up. Jim and his crew are attempting to take this concept national so you may be seeing one of these in your area. I have to admit that it is expensive. We thought it would at least give us a presence in the metropolitan area of Boise which is one of the fastest growing areas in the U S. I thought you might enjoy viewing our display there.
