DirectBuy of Buffalo Offers "Play" Area For Parents and Kids

Buffalo, NY (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- And while it can be a lot of fun to pick out your new kitchen, the new floors for your bathroom, it also requires your full attention. That’s a luxury members with children don’t always have. That’s why DirectBuy of Buffalo, the leading members-only showroom and home design centers that offer merchandise at manufacturer-direct prices, developed a “Kids Zone” area in their showroom so parents can focus on the task at hand and kids can enjoy the DirectBuy experience, too.

Though not a supervised area, the newly refurbished Kids Zone features a number of things to keep school-age children occupied and entertained. That includes a flat-screen television with video games to play from the comfort of “mini” recliners; as well as brand new tables and chairs. Kids Zone also features a wall painted with blackboard paint so kids can actually draw on the walls without fear of punishment. In addition, DirectBuy of Buffalo staff recently supplied the Kids Zone with an assortment of games and toys; Barbies and G.I. Joes.

“Let’s face it, most kids would rather go to the dentist than watch their parents shop for their next home improvement project. By the same token, it’s difficult for members with children to get the most out of the experience and do the research they need to do if they’re concerned about the kids getting fidgety. The Kids Zone gives children of DirectBuy members a place to play games, watch TV or even make new friends with other members’ kids while the grown-ups have their ‘fun’,” said Mark Klinger, owner of DirectBuy of Buffalo.

Creating fun things to do for children is nothing new for DirectBuy. DirectBuy franchises across North America regularly donate equipment to youth organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCAs and children’s hospitals. Most recently, DirectBuy of Buffalo donated a foosball table, a $600 retail value per table, to the William C. Baird Boys & Girls Clubhouse in Buffalo.

“Because we are entrenched in the community, we have an even greater incentive to make this a one-of-a-kind, unique shopping experience because many of the members are our friends, neighbors, even relatives,” said Klinger. “Upgrading the Kids Zone and donations to the Boys and Girls Club and other organizations are just an extension of that philosophy.”

DirectBuy showrooms offer members the opportunity to enjoy enormous savings on home furnishings, home improvement items, entertainment and outdoor products and accessories by purchasing wholesale, directly from the manufacturer. In addition, DirectBuy boasts a team of designers to help members with their purchases and gives them access to a roster of hand-selected contractors to expedite those projects.

Since 1971, DirectBuy has helped consumers enjoy enormous savings on home furnishings, home improvement items, entertainment and outdoor products, and accessories, by providing an avenue to purchase directly from the manufacturer. Conveniently located at 4950 Genesee Street in Cheektowaga, New York, DirectBuy of Buffalo offers members a comfortable, country-club setting, where they finally have the financial control of buying direct.
