How did Champ's Clock Shop get the Last Herschede? Champ's owner, Jerry Champion had become friends with Richard Herschede after a visit to the factory during a Dealer Tour. Richard saw something in Champ that he didn't know about himself. The terms were 6 months and Rich told Champ if he couldn't pay by then, they would work something out. Jerry immediately began a sales promotion and with great success paid off the debt in a few weeks and placed more orders.
With Sales of Herschede clocks going so well for us, then receiving the end of production letter, Jerry immediately called Richard in disbelief and asked, is this really all going to end?
