NFM's Best of 2015
2015 was an incredible year at NFM. We hosted massive events at each of our locations and continued our tradition of improving peoples’ lifestyles. Here’s a look at some of our biggest hits from 2015.
Grand Opening of NFM of Texas: Stretching across 100 acres, 560 sq. ft. of retail showroom, 1.3 million sq. ft. warehouse, 4,900 plus parking spaces. NFM of Texas opened its doors in early May! As the surrounding area continues to develop, NFM of Texas will be the anchor to a much larger development known as Grandscape.
Live Big Benefit: We also hosted a Gala at our newly opened Texas store. The Gala was put on to help raise money and awareness for the Cancer Support Community of North Texas. Warren Buffett was in attendance auctioning off many signed items. Together, we raised over $450,000 for a great cause.
50th Anniversary of Berkshire Hathaway: This year was an extra special year because instead of hosting the usual one-day event, Berkshire Hathaway shareholders had two days to take advantage of shopping. The 50th anniversary was celebrated as the year of black and gold and had lots of memorabilia to showcase many of the business accomplishments through the years.
Charitable Contributions: Over 8560 lbs. of food was donated by NFM staff members to help benefit local community food banks, feeding families that are in need. We continue to support local charities to help serve those less fortunate and better our communities.
Wayfinder App: We released our first ever NFM app, available on both iOS and Android for free! Are you ever looking for a specific product but don’t know where to find it? Search for it on our app and a map will pop up leading you straight to it! You’ll never be lost again.
Giveaways: Over $600,000 worth of products were given away in-store and online this year alone! If you’re not a fan of ours on social media or you don’t currently attend our in-store events, we’d suggest that if you like FREE stuff you should definitely start following us.
Facebook Fans: This year we hit a huge milestone, we reached 300,000 fans on our NFM Facebook page! We want to say thank you to everyone who follows us and we encourage you to check out our other social channels for the latest updates, sales, promotions, behind the scenes, events and so much more.
KitchenAid #10000 Cupcakes Campaign: We partnered with KitchenAid and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to help support the #10000Cupcakes campaign. For every cupcake created and shared using the hashtag, KitchenAid donated a $1 to the Susan. G. Komen Foundation. We worked with our bloggers to drive awareness to this campaign and it was a huge success!
Nate Berkus: We hosted a special celebrity guest event at NFM of Texas, where designer Nate Berkus showcased his new design of a high end LG appliance line. Our guests got a chance to meet him in person and ask him questions about his new line.
Bloggers: This year marked the launch of our blogger program. We hosted meet and greets in each of our store locations. We got the chance to meet with local area bloggers and learn about how their online communities can impact our marketing efforts and we’ve seen continued success in our outreach efforts and are excited to see where the program takes us in 2016!
Most importantly, we just want to thank you for choosing us. Here’s to an exciting New Year in 2016!
