David Lyon recently returned to the marketplace to offer his showroom consulting services after devoting two years to a project. He conducted a 2-1/2 hour workshop on showroom design, development and marketing at an Embassy buying group meeting in April that drew 250 people. His company, David Lyon and Associates, provides services for companies that are already in the decorative plumbing, kitchen and tile industry as well as for wholesalers that want to move into the retail market. Beyond the physical design and layout, the consultants can develop a comprehensive program geared to the individual analysis of showrooms/stores for greater profitability and market share. Past showroom projects include Blackman Supply, Long Island, N.Y.; Central Supply Co., Indianapolis; Coastal Supply, Staten Island, N.Y.; Ihrie Supply Co., Wilson, N.C.; Kelly's Pipe and Supply in Las Vegas and in Solana Beach, Calif.; and Ridgewood Supply, Mahwa, N.J.
