Wholesale Furniture Brokers is the revolutionary furniture shopping service that provides consumers the great prices associated with online shopping along with the "touch-n-feel" comfort of a physical store. With their tremendous growth, they are providing a window into the future of furniture sales. GoWFB.com, which currently services 31 major cities throughout the United States, is expanding its presence across North America and has just unveiled a new web site with a wide range of value-added features.

Kamloops, BC (Canada); July 21, 2004:
Responding to the strong demand for its unique model on furniture sales, Wholesale Furniture Brokers (GoWFB.com) is rapidly expanding its presence in North America. As part of its expansion plans, the warehouse furniture outlet consortium has unveiled a new web site with a range of value-added features at www.GoWFB.com.

With GoWFB.com's revolutionary "click-n-mortar" model, you can research and select, storage beds, leather sectionals, contemporary furniture, leather recliner chairs and much more from the comfort of your home at www.GoWFB.com. You can then view the furniture yourself prior to purchase at your local GoWFB.com warehouse. The physical warehouses, which are listed at www.GoWFB.com, are owned and operated by independent affiliates of GoWFB.com.

"Our operating expenses are a fraction of retail stores, so we deliver better value for the shopper's money," says GoWFB.com co-founder Sergei Tashlikowich. "So the price you pay is for the actual furniture, not extravagant displays and other expensive merchandising," he adds. Also, with GoWFB.com's model, customers get the added satisfaction of dealing with someone in their own community. GoWFB.com, which already serves over 30 metropolitan areas with a total population exceeding 102 million inhabitants, will soon have a physical outlet in each major North American city.

Value-added features
The new, visually pleasing home page ( www.GoWFB.com ) helps customers zero in quickly on special offers and featured products from a large range of name brand manufacturers. Using the live, chat-based online help feature, you can interact directly with the real people behind GoWFB.com. There is no longer any uncertainty after ordering. Thanks to GoWFB.com's new automated order-tracking feature, you can now follow the status of your order online.

To celebrate the launch of the new web site and the approaching second anniversary of its online service, GoWFB.com is giving away $50 gift certificates to visitors who sign up for their furniture newsletter.

Streamlined operations
GoWFB.com represents the coming together of people from across the continent. True to its business model, the company itself operates in a highly cost-efficient manner, leveraging the Internet and its tools. The company's rapid growth has been fuelled by innovative use of online marketing techniques like search engine listings and a strong strategy for sales via the popular online auction service, eBay. GoWFB.com's staff conduct most of their business and communications online using email, Instant Messenger software, and Voice Over IP Phone technology.

By allying with GoWFB.com, local furniture brokers are able to benefit from the boom in online shopping without needing to invest in expensive technology and marketing. For instance, through the new version of its web site, GoWFB.com has provided its brokers with online access to an automated wholesale order system. With GoWFB.com assuming responsibility for the web site, online marketing and branding, its affiliates can focus on their core strength: local customer service.
