    A Norwood, Mass man is a television specialist... specifically, a color TV specialist. That’s where he puts all his merchandising effort. Here’s what he does and how he does it...

  • A Department Store Fights Back
    Despite a smaller department, fewer salesmen and less real selling, The Fair is doing a $1-million a year business against rough Chicago competition because it, like other department stores, has learned how to meet the customers' demand for price

  • $300,000 from Home Demonstrations
    Unless your salesman is eager to give a home demonstration, you're not going to make many sales," says Adair. “I've found that about 60 percent of my home demonstrations bring sales, so the more appliances my salesmen can place in the home, the more sales I'm going to get.

  • A Discount House Merchandises Recorders
    Primarily a TV dealership, the company began merchandising recorders four years ago; sold 100 for $15,000 the first year. Today, Berman's fast growing recorder operation is helping to offset faltering television sales and giving the business a semblance of balance—in radio-TV no mean trick.

  • The Electronic Microwave Oven/Range—A Revolution in Cooking
    What is probably the greatest single advance in the art of cooking that we will see in our lifetime is already here. Here are some answers to dealer questions on how it works and how it will sell. Brand new microwave ovens are highlighted including the : Whirlpool, Westinghouse, Kelvinator, Tappan, General Electric and Hotpoint microwave ovens.

  • A New Approach to Kitchen Planning
    Women who manage their households with the orderly efficiency of good business will want a kitchen that provides for all the different household operations— one centralized plant where they can launder, sew, mend, plan schedules, order, take inventories and keep their records, in addition to the regular three-meals-a- day routine. With a back-to-back plan for kitchen and laundry equipment, carefully figured space planning and double duty counters, it’s all possible in an average kitchen.

  • Brazil's Galloping Appliance Market
    Despite government restrictions nearly every appliance is sold on time—10 percent or less down—and almost nobody ever defaults. Add the fact that the consumer group is increasing 15 percent a year and it's easy to see why South America's biggest country is off to a running boom

Strictly Experimental is this combination freezer-electronic range which General Electric demonstrated lost month. Housewife simply makes menu selection by pushing up to six of the 14 selector keys at top of unit. Dishes are then automatically conveyed to electronic oven at proper intervals so that completed meal comes out at one time. The freezer racks con be loaded with either pre-frozen commercial foods or home-prep a red meals . G-E officials emphasize that unit is nothing more than logical development of existing appliances and "does no take the place of a good cook." Instead, the XP C-1 allows housewife to prepare meals in advance and frees her from work while meal is being cooked.
