A 20-year veteran of the furniture industry, Dan Holte just recently joined Conlin’s Furniture as a member of their sales team at their 909 45th St. S., Fargo location.
Holte said he is extremely excited about his new association and the fact the business is stressing American-made in their promotion efforts. “Customers are tiring of imports. We have people come up to us and ask ‘do you have anything American-made?’”
Holte said the quick response is always ‘yes,’ mentioning Broyhill, Marshfield, and Lazy Boy, just to name a few.
He also touts Conlin’s American-made bedding lineup. “We have one of the most beautiful mattress departments anywhere.”
“As a salesperson, I am really excited about the direction Conlin’s is taking their business and about being part of it,” he added. “Conlin’s listens to what people want and that is so important.”
Prior to joining Conlins, Holte spent 12 years at West Fargo’s Furniture Mart and also has 20 cumulative years as a former barber at Village West and Shear Magic, where he was forced to retire because of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Holte noted that thanks to these former affiliations he is now seeing a lot of familiar faces in his new position and welcoming that. “People can call and ask for me anytime and if I’m not available I will get back to them. I am really trying to emphasize customer service in assisting people with all their furniture needs.”
Holte can be reached by calling 701-281-9615.
He and his wife, Sue, have resided in West Fargo the past six years, and have called the metro area home for most of their lives. Sue’s late father, Earl Brokofsky, was a longtime West Fargo postmaster.
