Capel Rugs to Open at Summer Las Vegas Market
Capel Rugs has announced it will be open for business in its World Market Center’s Building A, Space A-133 showroom of the Las Vegas Design Center for the Las Vegas Market, running Aug. 30 - Sept.3.
“It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to get together,” said Cameron Capel, president, sales and marketing for Capel Rugs. “We can’t wait to see our colleagues and catch up with them in person.”
To ensure employee and customer safety, Capel Rugs is following all guidelines issued by the International Market Centers, the Las Vegas Market’s operator, regarding showroom protocols. The company’s staff and customers will be required to wear masks and socially distance while in the showroom, and hand sanitizer will be readily available. In lieu of the usual gourmet lunch offered to buyers and designers, the company will be providing individually wrapped snacks.
Capel Rugs encourages retailers and designers to make appointments for their showroom visits if possible, but walk-ins also will be welcome.
Six new rug collections will be introduced at the Market. Among the new models making their debut is Sheridan, a collection of three upscale leather rugs with creative geometric motifs and lively, gold-splatter embellishments.
“We’re doing everything we can to support our retailers and designers during this very challenging period,” Capel said. “Large, ecommerce-focused accounts continue to do well, but brick-and-mortar sales levels vary greatly from market to market. The good news is that when shoppers come into a store, they are ready to buy. And with our exciting new introductions, we’re giving them another good reason to visit their local retailers.”
