Penmarc Inspired Podcast – April 20, 2022


Greetings to all of our Penmarc Family! 
I want to say how thankful I am as the South Central Market Manager to be given the opportunity to work with such a great group of people at Penmarc and The Container Store.
Last week the market managers and market leads got to see first-hand, The Container Store's newest Preston closet line as we set up the new displays in a couple of stores in South Florida. 
Working with this team, I witnessed many of our Core Values in action. We Before Me was evident as everyone worked together to learn this new product line. You will see the Spirit of Excellence shine as you read through the guidelines and instructions that were put together for all of you to follow in the coming weeks and months as we tackle all of our Store Sets and new customer sales for this new product across the country.
Next week we start display updates in Walnut Creek & Corta Madera (Northern California), Framer's Market (Southern California), and Washington, D.C. Lisa Orlando will send an email to anyone scheduled to work on a Preston Display store set up the week before the store setup. 
Keep in mind that the setups started last week and go all the way through July of this year. We are so excited for everyone to see the new product that I feel has much more to offer than the previous Laren product line.
Information about Preston is still very fluid, but I encourage all Laren installers (or aspiring Laren installers) to visit the Closet Works Website:


The 6-week Avera sale started on Monday, April 18, and runs through May 25.
We will see an increase in ISV measure orders, and we need everyone to review the ISV guidelines and ensure you are calling for authorization for ISVs. The number is 844-736-6272.
BE PRECISE on every ISV! Good ISVs are the difference between a smooth install and waiting hours for TCS to redesign with unexpected cuts.
Please ensure you listen to the call from the week of April 6. We have updated information on Cruxos guidelines for reporting on busted jobs.


I will display We Before Me by watching out for the safety of my coworkers! 
This month, we will review some scenarios to better understand sexual harassment in the workplace. Harassment, including sexual harassment, is against our Core Values and Standard of Conduct at Penmarc.

"Gary, who installed the closets, was excellent." 
- Eliza Gordon-Lipkin, Customer
"The closets look phenomenal, and Gary definitely deserves praise, especially after seeing those gliding shoe shelves fit with sliding doors."

"These guys are awesome! I have had many contractors in my home, but these guys are by far the best. They have been so professional and have done a great job with my closets." 
- Beth Griffith, WDL Customer
We've continued to get positive feedback from TCS and TCS customers. I hope each of you strives to make this list on every install you take! Not every customer who has a good experience reaches out to say so, but we still want to do our great on each job to help motivate them to say so! In most cases, all it takes is satisfying yet straightforward things like having that introduction conversation and CLEANING up after yourself. 
From our DFO, Lisa Orlando:
"Congratulations to Roger Concha, who was promoted to Senior Market Manager. Roger now manages both Southern California and Northern California! Roger's leadership and hard work over the last two years has been incredible, and we are looking forward to his expanded leadership role within Penmarc." 
Thank you for your time taken to listen or read this update! Make it a Great week!
