We are a family owned business and come from humble beginnings, starting off with only a 100 sq. ft of warehouse space and a pickup truck. Since then we have experienced a tremendous amount of growth. We are not in a retail space; in fact, you would probably miss us if you were just driving by. We keep it simple with 7,500 sq. ft. of combined showroom & warehouse spaces, a couple showroom sales people and a couple service/delivery guys. We---ve been told a thousand times ---we didn---t know what to expect when we came here but we have to admit we---re pleasantly surprised by the quality and price of your products--- People often tell us that we are the best kept secret around and I respond by saying ---we---re not trying to be---. The fact that we personally deliver 90% of what leaves our warehouse makes it an easy decision to drive an hour or 2 or 3 to save thousands of dollars knowing you don---t have to rent a U haul or borrow someone---s truck. We definitely are not the largest retailer and may never be; but we pride ourselves on the best service & value anywhere in our local area. Well that---s our story, we started in a 100 sq. ft. storage locker, my office was the front seat of my pickup truck and today we all have our own desks in our 4,000 sq. ft Westport showroom, and a separate 3,500 sq. ft. inventory warehouse. We have personally delivered as far south as Philadelphia and as far north as the Canadian border. We don---t let little things like distance and logistics stand in our way of making someone happy. With over 12,000 happy customers to date. Thanks in advance for your help and support in continuing to make Mike---s Factory Direct the best kept secret in Fairfield County, CT
