How our sales staff deal with a customer: our policy is very clear and simple – we do not hard sell. Our jobs and our duties are to help you, the buyer, regardless of how much you want to spend, and to find out exactly what you need and want for your particular décor, budget and your taste. It’s almost as if we are the marriage broker between the buyer and the rug. We try to help create a long-lasting love affair between you and your purchase, after a memorable experience!
Here is a list of our renowned services that you can expect when interacting with Victor Lidchi:
