Jim Forker Opens New Location

 Jim Forker, Multi-Unit Franchisee
 
After 25 years in the Rent to Own industry, Jim Forker has now opened his 5th Premier location.

Forker opened his first Premier Rental-Purchase store in Benton Harbor Michigan in 2005. His newest Premier Home Furnishings location, which opened in May, is in Grand Rapids Michigan. Premier Home Furnishings is a division of The Premier Companies which offers the customers the choice of purchasing their home furnishing needs through their rental purchase plan or through their retail sales program.

Forker’s passion for the rent to own industry has motivated him to become a multi-store owner. His dedication to sharing with his employees and his vision for his company’s future is a major part of his continued success. He treats all of his staff like family and truly cares for each one of them. Hard work, motivation and the desire to succeed helped him to be awarded the 2011 Premier Dealer of the Year.

“I’ve always had dreams of being a multi-store owner and do not plan to stop with my 5th store,” said Forker. “I love this business and my customers and I never want to be doing anything else.”

Jim’s dreams are becoming a reality. His goal is to own and operate 6 – 8 additional locations. There is no doubt that he will succeed! All Forker’s stores, which are located in Michigan, are celebrating the Grand opening of his new store through the end of July.


The national office of The Premier Companies is located in Williamsburg, Virginia. Premier Brands consist of Premier Rental-Purchase, Premier Home Furnishings, and Premier Auto by Rent. All Premier stores are independently owned and operated. Visit Premier’s website at www.premierrents.net or call 800/2-Premier ext.
