Submitter’s comments: Supposedly the largest piano retailer on the East Coast.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: It’s comments like the above that confuse me. Why? The site sucks. Is the company successful because nobody sees their website, but the company has great word-of-mouth? Is the company successful because the website is so poorly designed, but it matches the expectations of their customers? Do they have great TV and other media campaigns? Would they be the biggest piano retailer in the world if they had a better looking website?
