I am a resident of South Jersey and was hesitant about crossing the river to look at pianos for my daughter. So, we visited a couple of stores in our local area first. As someone who believes in integrity I was actually pushed across the river after dealing with ONE of the south jersey stores. Not only did their sales person make me feel pressured, they set out to slam Cunningham , albeit in a very subtle manner. That doesn't fly with me. So, I told my husband we were going to Phila.
I am so happy I did. I had already seen the interview with one of the owners on Fox 29 as he explained that they were selling a Cunningham line of pianos ( hoping to be affordable) . Although they are not yet manufactored in the US, they turned out to be lovely pieces.
From the moment I set foot in that old building I felt comfortable. Our salesperson, Peter, was very knowledgeable and was not one who hovered. I didn't feel as if I was being pushed in any way. I also appreciated the way he answered our questions in a straightforward manner and if he didn't know the answer, he was more than happy to find it for us.
When I mentioned we had looked at pianos in NJ and some of my discomfort with how "some" choose to sell , not one derogatory comment (actually no comment) came from Peter. It was refreshing to speak with someone who wasn't concerned with pettiness. Actually I got the feeling that that was the overall feeling of this company.
So, while the is no such thing as perfection, I can say that my experience in Germantown was a pleasant surprise and we our now owners of a Cunningham. Thanks to all.
