Becoming the Face of Miskelly's Mattress: The Dr. V Story

Dr. V has become a well-known figure in the mattress industry, even earning Furniture Today's Retail Giants of Bedding award in 2018. 

The one-and-only Alan Vonderhaar recounts his early days going from the waterbed world to landing a job at Miskelly's—and eventually putting on a lab coat to create the character that became the face of Miskelly's mattress for the past 25 years. 

At 22 years old, Vonderhaar found himself driving through Jackson, Mississippi and noticed a lack of waterbed stores. He went to Denny Boyd, his boss at the time, and told him he'd like to leave St. Louis and open a store in Jackson. 

Vonderhaar opened Sunset Waterbeds and operated it for ten years before waterbed sales started going away and he found a permanent home at Miskelly's. 

Thanks to Dr. V for sharing your story, passing along some of your wisdom, and for your friendship.

Doorcounts

Join us in welcoming our new sponsor, Doorcounts! Foot traffic is expensive. Do you know what's more costly? We call it "Track Lack." If you lack the ability to track who's coming into your store and what happens while they're there (and after they leave), you could have a severe case of "Track Lack."

Doorcounts is a tracker and a connector.

Doorcounts Connects:

1. A smart camera to a CRM database.

2. Every customer to a salesperson.

3. Better insights to your business decisions.

4. More sales to grow your business faster.

Here's how Doorcounts works:  1) a camera sends a photo to the next salesperson’s smartphone. 2) the salesperson then records details in a CRM database and up board from their phone 3)  actions can be automatically scheduled and/or fulfilled 4) you never miss another sales opportunity.

We're really excited to partner with Doorcounts. Check out Doorcounts.com today and tell them Dos Marcos sent you!
