2022 was the first show in our 60 years of having “Open Houses” history to utilize electronic ordering. Normally an earlier adaptor, Arett delayed electronic ordering at our show for two main reasons until we could create a solution that would enhance your shopping experience, save you time and be fairly easy to execute.

Over the past two years we have worked to advance arett.com for both the Virtual shopping experience and for the live show, assuming we would once again be able to get together in person. These advancements along with your efforts to learn how to shop online enabled us to transition to electronic ordering in 2022. We couldn’t have done it without your patience and support, for that, we thank each and every one of you.

Change is difficult so at the live show this year we offered three ways to order, leaving the decision up to you or as we referred to it internally, “your choice”: Arett.com, Excel ordering, or standard paper ordering. With the exception of a squirrel (RIP) bringing down the power grid at our HQ in New Jersey for 20 minutes on the final show day we have considered year 1 of electronic ordering a success and a huge step in the right direction.
