Joe Tahan just had his 91st birthday, and is looking and sounding a little rough in his commercials. When Joe does pass on, will Al Tahan have a Funeral Sale?? "Hi, this is Al....we're having a Sofa Sale in celebration of Dad's Funeral..."

Thats funny, but knowing him he probably will have such a sale, as long as there is a buck in it he would do almost anything.

It's sad that Al has his drooling father on television to make a sale. It's time to move on Al and be an innovator. Stop relying on your 91 year old father - it's sad.......

I agree with this comment except the drooling comment. Joe Tahan is a very respectful business man and gentleman, and should be respected. The family should continue to honor their father, perhaps a very large portrait in the showroom as our founder. I do believe however, Al needs to find his own niche as a businessman and come up with a plan to identify the company as his, not always reminding the public their still relying on their father.

Al and his sisters are scum. They treat their employees like crap. They'll rip your heart out for a nickle. All the smiles and charm are an act. It's part of the show. They are unhappy hos. Al probably can't believe how gullable his customers are.

I bought furniture there. Everybody from the sales person who waited on us to the delivery people were terrified of the Tahan family. God forbid they did anything wrong. It was sad.

I worked for them a few years ago. They are terrible. No matter what you do, it isn't right. They find fault with everyone and everything. Forget about praise or being told you did a good job. Al and his sisters are ready to complain about anything at any time. Miserable people to work for. No loyalty to employees. Forget about ever getting sick or hurt! That reason enough to pour on the guilt!
ahhh

i don't think it's so much relying on their father, as it is keeping their father alive in a business he worked so hard to build for them. obviously dad joe is enjoying it. to the tehan's...damned if you do, damned if you don't..dad is 91...if you are still making a buck or two off of him...i'm sure he is just lovin' it!!:)

I was in their store on Commercial Dr. and saw Joe sitting in a living room chair reading the newspaper, I said something to him to strike up a conversation, "Hey Joe, Support our Troops", and he just sat there and said nothing like I wasn't even there!
I was looking for a piece of a mirror to put under his nose to see if he was still breathing.
That did it for me, I walked out.
Al, if you're going to have Pops on the showroom floor, put him in the stockroom where he's out of sight from customers looking to buy furniture.

They put him there to keep in free daycare. His wife doesn't want him at home. Why put him in adult day care when your salespeople can care for him at no charge?!

I QUOTE "I spend more in advertising in one week than you two make in a year." That is what your saint told my parents back in 1986 when they asked for a better price on a way over priced piece of crap recliner for my sickly grandfather. I was 11 and I remember it clearly - because it made my parents feel like crap. I'm sorry my mom (Air Force Civilian) and my dad (a Rome Fireman) worked for a living. Crap recliner didn't even last two months before it was on the curb. I give my parents credit for even buying it. Me - if it was the only place to buy furniture from in the country - I would sleep on cardboard!

Experience #2, 3 years ago in Yorkville or where ever the store is out there, I took my mom there she was looking for a nice oak or cherry wardrobe closet to store her sweaters in. The salesman attacked us as soon as we came in the store (guess we didn't fit the NH standards being working people), what are you looking for and we told him. QUOTE - "I suggest you go to Walmart." I being the refined one in the family told him what parts of my anatomy he could feast on and what he could do with himself in his spare time later that evening. I made the biggest scene I could, afterall I was just white trash in there eyes.

Great customer service! Proud to be working trash - no handouts here! I'll make my own g-damn furnishings...
