"Grand Opening" of totally different brand of discount club08/10/2011
Los Angeles – When it comes to retailing, it seems France’s loss was America’s gain when Marc and his family moved from the shadow of the Eiffel Tower to the sunny skies of L.A. Marc served for over 30 years at the top of the executive food chain at France’s Carrefour – a mega-giant marketing firm that generates billions of dollars in annual sales across numerous Asian and European countries.
Today, after a late winter/early spring, 2011 launch, Marc is the Founder, President, and CEO of 100 Essentials, a totally different brand of discount club that had announced its “Grand Opening” from its central headquarters in L.A. When asked to sum up the exceptionally fast growing company’s business goal or chief focus, Marc (an extremely affable CEO who prefers to be called by his first name), described the startup quite succinctly. “100 Essentials has but one goal,” he stated, “and that is to bring genuine luxury, unsurpassed and ‘consistent’ quality, and famous designer style into the lives of those consumers who never dreamed they could afford it”.
The discount club offers its members savings of 30-70% off retail prices on everything from designer office furniture to original oil paintings from well-known artists to luxury quality and style home furnishings to one of a kind outdoor/garden and home lighting “creations” to a wide spectrum of other beautiful and unique items. Marc definitely prefers the word “creations” over “products” because, as he explains it, “We don’t sell what you’d typically find at other discount clubs – ‘cookie cutter’ designs and inconsistent quality. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. At 100 Essentials, we sell only world famous designer style ‘creations’ that are always of the ‘very highest’ quality. And we mean it”.
The company has been registering new members just about as fast as their bustling and efficient customer service department can sign them up – and buyers should know that there is absolutely no cost or obligation for anyone to become a “voting member” of the club. Yes, Marc also wanted to be sure to mention the fact that, “Using a unique, B2B platform, we reach out to the globe’s most talented artists, artisans, designers, and top manufacturers by inviting them to submit their best ‘creations’ for our member’s consideration. Every two weeks, we present new treasures, and then let our members vote on what we’re going to add to our exciting collection”. Marc concluded by saying, “The whole ‘voting option’ has been wildly popular, and we get countless letters and testimonials from club members who say they just love it”.
100 Essentials must be doing something right because their fulfillment center is working night and day to process the company’s orders. “That’s a very ‘good thing’,” Marc said with a smile, “and we only expect our success to grow”. You can visit the company’s well-designed and comprehensive website at www.100Essentials.com or contact them at 10100 Santa Monica Blvd., suite 300, Los Angeles, CA 90067. Their main phone number is 310-651-9977 (fax to 310-772-2246).
The Discount Club Opened Its Virtual Doors07/30/2011
Los Angeles – Anyone who is searching for a truly unique, buyer's discount club should consider what recently came on the scene in Los Angeles (and nationwide) in April, 2011. 100 Essentials is an incredibly fast growing startup that is the brainchild of Marc Parisot, a former top level executive with France's Carrefour; one of the world's largest retail marketing companies that reports multi-billion dollar annual revenues derived from sales in Asia and Europe. Having over 30 years of experience at Carrefour, "Marc" – feel free to call him by his first name – has few equals when it comes to expertise in the fine art and science of buying and selling. And when Marc and his family relocated from Paris to L.A., Marc's incomparable business instincts told him there was a real need for a totally different brand of retailing in America.
"When my family and I first arrived in Los Angeles," Marc explained, "we needed just about everything under the sun to set up housekeeping in our new home. We had diligently searched the 'better' retail shops all around L.A., San Francisco, and even New York City – countless shopping trips that all pointed to the fact that genuine luxury quality and style was typically priced far beyond the financial reach of millions of American consumers".
"Run of the mill discount clubs" (as Marc describes them) were everywhere, and 100 Essentials would face extensive competition. No matter, Marc knew his experience and a truly innovative marketing platform would combine to quickly separate 100 Essentials from the "herd". The company specializes in true luxury quality items that offer the very best in design, all of which sell for an impressive 30-70% off retail prices. At 100 Essentials, members can save on everything from office furniture to original oil paintings to home furnishings and accessories to outdoor/garden items to home lighting and much more.
After extensive and lengthy planning, the discount club opened its virtual doors wide to accommodate an almost instant "stampede" of style and price-savvy shoppers who wasted no time becoming members. "Our initial success was phenomenal," Marc said, "and the company has continued to grow almost exponentially ever since day one". When asked why 100 Essentials had been signing up new members "in droves", Marc summed it up by saying, "When American consumers know they can find truly luxurious creations from some of the world's most outstanding artists, designers, and manufacturers – all for up to 70% off – smart buyers really 'will' beat a path to your door".
There's no denying the fact that the company has enjoyed exceptional success, and one look at the company's website, www.100Essentials.com, and you'll see why. The site is brimming over with luxury and style rarely (if ever) found at other discount clubs, and the absolutely affordable, "direct from the factory or artist's studio prices" are gimmick-free and absolutely for real. There's never any cost or obligation whatsoever to become a voting member of the discount club – members actually cast their ballot for new items they want to see on the site – and the startup has made nothing short of outstanding customer service a top priority. You can contact 100 Essentials at their corporate headquarters in L.A. at: 10100 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 300, Los Angeles, CA 90067. You can reach them by phone at 310-651-9977 or send your faxes to 310-772-2246.
