  • High-end Furniture retail operation: Due to global supply chain issues this opportunity is on hold for the balance of 2021. The Seller has wisely elected to spend time managing suppliers and providing customers with updates on deliveries. Regardless, the business looks to be on track to a record year revenue-wise. We'll update this when appropriate. This is a uniquely well positioned company for the new normal as their products fit perfectly into the stay-at-home dynamic that is expected to continue for some time. STATUS: on hold.
