Pride Family Brands Inks Lease With Chicago Merchandise Mart
The showroom will continue to be the focal point of Pride’s designer and specialty sales activities including the International Casual Furnishings Association’s July and September markets.
"The Mart is a proven supporter of our industry and subsequently, Pride Family Brands is committed to maintaining a major presence within the Mart," said Steve Lowsky, president. "With a long-term agreement, our ongoing partnership will be able to continue in a manner advantageous to everyone."
In 2014, the International Casual Furnishings Association reached an agreement with MMPI for the continued hosting of the organization’s annual trade show.
“MMPI has been a steward of consistent growth for the casual industry and the host of thousands of casual furnishings buyers annually,” said Byron Morton, vice president of leasing with MMPI. “Pride Family Brands has been a part of the Merchandise Mart family for over 35 years and we are excited to have reached this agreement to continue this valuable relationship.”
