Mr. Imperato Surprised Me!

Post by COSteve »

In my other post, "Anthony Imperato, More than Just Hinting . . . ." I relayed the answer Mr. Imperato provided. I thought that was good news and shared it with you here. Well, I have some more news. Today, out of the blue I got a package from him. In it was the following:

WOW! Just WOW.

Mr. Imperato is probably fairly well off. I'm guessing that he doesn't worry about his next meal.
(Not being snarky - just the facts....) Probably also NOT filthy rich - ya know, flying his Gulfstream
to Monte Carlo every weekend filthy rich.

But Mr. Imperato is not stupid. He's not pinching pennies everywhere he can at the expense of customer service.
How much did that gesture cost him wholesale? Not very much when you consider the goodwill it generated on just this
forum. If he sells only one more rifle as a result of that gesture - and without a doubt he will - he and his employees
will be paid back many, many times over! That's smart business. :wink:

And that's cool stuff..... 8)

It sure has me thinking about one of my suggested 20" Walnut stocked, Casehardened receiver with side loading gate, round barreled, carbine in .45 Colt. As it could take stouter loads than my Ubertis, I figure it would be a great hog and deer gun as well as a fun plinker. :D

Besides, can you ever have too many leverguns?? :lol:

As a previous small business owner myself, I agree with both of you. However, it was a nice gesture all the same and one he didn't have to do. Compared to most of the gun shop owners I've met who openly exhibit disdain for most of their customers, it's refreshing to find one who is thoughtfully working his business.

Henry is run the way a business should be run. where EVERY customer is listened to and helped when they have issues. No matter what product they choose to market the formula never changes.
