And 20 years later I discovered that Room Doctor began on the 20th Anniversary of Woodstock! How fitting for a renegade company designing and manufacturing “The Most Affordable, Solid-wood, Eco-friendly Furniture in America” with an eventual focus on “Simple Healthy Living” to begin on such a day. And one that has a PEACE room instead of a War Room (what big corporations call their Board room). P.E.A.C.E. standing for A Positive and Enthusiastic Attitude Conquers EVERYthing.
Set up shop in a 150 year old barn in Lemont, PA to build loft beds for Penn State students with my first store in a 12’x18′ Hansel and Gretal type Gingerbread shack located on the other side of the parking lot. It was a long cold winter that first year but luckily the dorms where heated when doing deliveries and installations!
