As owner and manager of THE SIGN, Paul (Bill’s son-in-law) is involved in every detail, from skis and boots in the winter to outdoor furniture in the summer. Back in the early 1970s, when THE SIGN carried one brand – Samsonite chairs with a mesh sling, it was considered top-of-class. Clients still come in to ask if they can get replacement slings. (Our answer: yes!) Paul inherited the furniture portfolio in 1983 and made the decision to take it to a new level. He was meticulous in his research and his hard work paid off. In 2006, THE SIGN won the prestigious Apollo Award for the Best Garden Furniture Store outside of the United States.
