Retail Sales Specialist Celebrates 107-Year Anniversary

Now in its fourth generation, Lynch Sales Company announced it is celebrating 107 years of service helping retailers meet their goals.

Joseph (JP) Lynch founded the company after making a sales deal with Sears Roebuck and Company in 1914. He was to place a double-truck newspaper ad promoting “The Great Storewide Sale” in one of their Chicago stores. In return, Sears would compensate him with commission on sales made during the event.

As crowds formed by Sears’ door on the sale’s opening day, JP realized that his unique method of selling and promotion could impact countless stores. Born of this idea was the first promotional sales firm: Lynch Sales Company. Now, Lynch is the leader in its field, carrying out profitable sales events for thousands of retail clients throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

“My great grandfather JP is one of many family members who have contributed to the company, including: John Lynch, Daniel Lynch, Philip Lynch, Dan Lynch Jr., Judson Lynch, Megan Lynch, Allison Lynch, Catherine Lynch; and the current management team: Chris Lynch, Barbara Lynch, and myself,” says Stephanie Lynch, Vice President of Marketing. “Each generation is unique, but our philosophy has never changed.”

“Helping retailers to meet their goals, such as raising cash for a comfortable retirement, is the most gratifying part of what we do,” says Chris Lynch, President. Lynch Sales Company puts their mission into practice by working on behalf of the store owner’s best interests while conducting ethical marketing campaigns approved by the Better Business Bureau. Custom designed sale plans for relocation, remodeling, inventory reduction, cash raising/business stimulation, and retirement/store closing can raise 100% of a store’s annual volume, in just 12 weeks. Hundreds of client testimonial letters on the company website speak to the results.

In honor of their 107-year anniversary, Lynch Sales Company has made a donation to Metropolitan Ministries. Referred to by Chattanoogans as MetMin, or the “emergency room” for social services, this nonprofit organization provides urgent financial assistance for food, medication, bill payments, transportation, and access to other resources. Lynch Sales Company, originating in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has been operating out of Chattanooga, Tennessee since 2015. Barbara Lynch, Vice President, says: “We are so proud to be a part of Chattanooga’s business community, and hope to continue contributing for many more generations to come.”
