What do a fireman and a motorcycle mechanic know about decorating your home?
My dad, Don, started selling used furniture in downtown Mount Vernon in 1957, he was a full-time fireman and part-time janitor just trying to make ends meet for his family. Later my mom, Helen, brought her intuitive sense of interior decorating and flair for fashion to the company. I started my career at Connell’s after graduating from college in 1976.
Then came the motorcycle mechanic…Curt…my son. After going to a motorcycle mechanic’s school Curt decided to join us in the family business. His mission was to bring our company into the 21st century. Today we have state of the art technology that saves you time and money. Heck, this web site was his “brain child.” Now you can shop online or view 1000’s of pieces of furniture from your home at your convenience.
You gotta love savvy young “out-of-the-box” thinkers like Curt…I know I do.
