Owner, Arleen Harry, started Garrett Specialties in 1991 as one of the few promotional companies on the Internet. For Arleen, starting a business at the age of 50 was scary. Others in the industry thought she was nuts. Their idea of a successful advertising specialties business was to sell door to door. However, Arleen knew that the future was on the web. At that time there were few women business owners, another challenge for Arleen.
As a heavy hitting real estate broker for 25 years, she knew first hand the importance of service, service and more service. The business was born upon this framework.
I can remember after a real estate sale, I would give my client a personalized doormat. After seeing their reaction, I knew that people like to see their name in print. So, the promotional products industry was one that I could relate to and this experience challenged me to think outside the box to create interest. (Arleen Harry, Owner)
