The Futon Shop In Pleasant Hill
Spotlight On Marcelo At The Futon Shop In Pleasant Hill
Born and raised in Martinez, Marcelo started working at The Futon Shop two months ago, but is no stranger to selling furniture. He spent many years employed at Pottery Barn and now has joined The Futon Shop Team along side his manager Perry. He is easy to talk to and eager to learn about the many products we offer: including over 33 organic and green futon mattresses, sofa bed frames, modern couches, and platform beds.
TFS: When you are not at The Futon Shop how do you spend your time?
Marcelo: I spend most of my time volunteering at Concord's Food Bank and I study at Diablo Valley College.
TFS: What have you found different working here at The Futon Shop than working at Pottery Barn?
Marcelo: I was surprised how some customers come in and get comfortable checking out beds. There was one customer that came in a couple days in a row and would take off his shoes and he actually fell asleep while checking out our mattresses. It looked like this customer really looked forward to taking a little nap on our futons and felt very comfortable taking his time.
TFS: I guess that other customers interested in futons can expect the same treatment while you are there? They can relax and take their time.
TFS: This is one of the most popular futons in our organic mattress line. The soft organic latex, four inch spring core and organic cotton makes it feel like sitting on a cloud while providing support for your back.
