BUSINESS OFFERS DECORATING SERVICES

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

Just in time for holiday dcor, Duane Pixler has opened his decorating service in Brookings.

Pixler, who has 30 years experience in floral display, decorating, and visual merchandising, is operating from his home to be able to offer his professional services at a reasonable rate.

His specialty is helping real estate personnel prepare a home for quicker sale. However, he enjoys helping individual clients and businesses add beautiful touches for holidays or other special occasions.

Those who visited U.S. Bank this past month had an opportunity to view some of Pixler's decorating talent. He provided the decorations for Elmo Williams' book signing celebration at the bank Oct. 25.

Pixler is skilled at finding just the right decorations for home, businesses, organizations, and special parties. No job is too large or too small. He said he is especially interested in helping those who find it difficult to personally manage the decorating chores.

He explained that his past experience in taking care of his grandmother and brightening her atmosphere has given him insight into how to help make a home beautiful and special for the holidays.

Pixler will provide a consultation without charge or obligation. Pixler said he can gauge the time it will require to provide the desired dcor and the materials needed.

"There's much a good designer can do to provide something special for nothing," Pixler said.

Pixler said that he and his mother, Sherry Drobny, who works at U.S. Bank, moved to Brookings for her health and they love the community. He looks forward to making many new friends as he works to help clients find beauty in their surroundings.

For a consultation, call (541) 787-9200.

  • Ferdinand Piech resigns, ending an era at Volkswagen
    HAMBURG/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Ferdinand Piech, a towering figure at Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) for more than two decades, resigned as its chairman on Saturday after losing a showdown he had provoked with Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn, ending an era at the iconic German carmaker. Piech, the 78-year-old grandson of the inventor of the Volkswagen Beetle Ferdinand Porsche, had previously seen off other executives who crossed him, including his own hand-picked successor as CEO, Bernd Pischetsrieder. "The members of the steering committee came to a consensus that, in the light of the past weeks, the mutual trust necessary for successful cooperation was no longer there," the six-member panel said in a statement after another meeting on Saturday.
  • Abercrombie & Fitch to ditch 'sexualized marketing': Washington Post
    Retail clothing chain Abercrombie & Fitch will end by July its "sexualized marketing," after years of blanketing its web sites, store windows and shopping bags with photos of half-naked men, according to the Washington Post. It will also stop using shirtless models or lifeguards at events and store openings for both the Abercrombie & Fitch and the Hollister brands, the newspaper reported late Friday, citing an announcement. Abercrombie & Fitch had come under fire in recent years for its strict dress code and sexualized marketing, and has been in a Supreme Court case for denying a Muslim woman a job because of her head scarf. The changes come as the company faces slumping sales, as teens increasingly move away from the brand, according to the Washington Post.
  • Deutsche faces tough task paring back retail, investment banking
    Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) faces a long and costly battle, analysts say, to sell Postbank (DPBGn.DE) and pare investment banking, the new strategic goals it outlined late on Friday. Deutsche will face an especially difficult challenge in selling off Postbank without having to post losses. “We're worried about jobs at Postbank,” Carsten Schneider, finance expert and deputy SPD parliamentary floor leader, told Reuters. Postbank could fetch close to 3.6 billion euros ($3.9 billion) if it sells for a multiple of 0.8 times a book value of 4.5 billion euros, according to analysts' calculations.
