Although Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams has had a presence in Paramus for over a month, they recently had a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony. When Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams does something, they do it big and unique just like their furniture designs. That included asking Mayor Rich LaBarbiera to officiate at the ribbon cutting using a twenty inch pair of scissors! The Mayor commented that while Trenton was the political capital of New Jersey, Paramus was the retail capital. A long time Paramus resident he recalled the presence of Rickles at that very spot.
Several hundred people attended the grand opening, starting with courteous valet parking. As they entered the furniture store, they were greeted by a bevy of pretty women who immediately made them feel at home. Quick as a flash, someone appeared to check their coats and give them a receipt.
With a DJ playing music in the background, 4 servers we're lined up to offer a choice of drinks. After that, one could go to the rear of the store for a vast array of libations. Once the thirst was satisfied, they could partake of the many hors d'oeuvre that were being walked around through the assemblage or go to one of the serving stations for more solid food.
Community minded, the grand opening of this high class furniture place featured a silent auction offering three home shopping sprees valued at $10,000, $5,000 & $2,500 plus a three month membership at neighbor Equinox Fitness, a Felix Chair in Venice-Graphite and other sundry items. The proceeds went to the Tyler Clementi Foundation, whose parents and brother were in attendance. The retail facility will offer a design assistance program where their experts will help create and formulate a design in your home using the vast resources of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Yes .. they do make house calls. For more information: www.mgbwhome.com
