SC: What is your name, position, how long have you worked there?
Digs: Ben Palmer-Ball, owner who founded the company in 2001. He has been hands on growing and evolving the business ever since. Deb Woolfolk is our business manager who started about 10 years ago. She is integral to every aspect of Digs success.
SC: Where is your store located & why is that a good location for your customers?
Digs: Digs is conveniently located in the heart of St. Matthews, a small close-in city of older homes and neighborhood merchants. It is a convenient location for daily needs shopping and has a small town atmosphere that suits our personalized, local flavor.
SC: What makes your business unique?
Digs: We offer our clients a variety of products for inside AND outside their homes – our smaller size enables us to offer personalized service and to know our customers needs and preferences – and often their first names! Ben is an architect, and enjoys traveling to the customers’ homes and developing drawings and sketches to show what can work – often incorporating client’s existing furniture to create a unique look and feel. He also enjoys working with clients just getting started with projects – making suggestions that can make a new indoor or outdoor space feel more personalized.
SC: Describe a favorite project.
Digs: Any project that features more constraints or given conditions forces us to think outside the box to arrive at a solution that is practical, affordable and most of all CREATIVE…the more challenging, the better!
SC: Why do you choose our products over others for your customers?
Digs: Summer Classics and Gabby provide products that deliver a lot of impact for the price – a great value for our store – many looks/materials/finishes that can mix and match for a customized look on the floor and ultimately, in our customer’s home.
SC: Do you have any advice for customers when shopping for home furnishings?
Digs: Seek inspiration from any variety of sources (Pinterest, websites, magazines or even your travels) and show us/share with us your vision and we can work to try and create a solution that gets you to that perfect place…be aware that it may take some time (and budget) to get to that place, and we can help you take incremental steps to create your personal look over time.
SC: Is there anything you would like to tell our audience?
Digs: the SC and Gabby team give us such great support/tools, advice, and service that we feel like part of the extended White family!
