Rooms-to-Go CEO Jeffrey Seaman is not such a big fan of the federal government's Cash for Clunkers program.
Today, during an interview for an upcoming story, Seaman mentioned that the Clunkers program has been bad for his business.
"I think it just diverted buying power," he said. "I think the fact that it happened with back to school [made it worse]. So X amount of energy is devoted to back-to-school shopping. Then the government had a sale on cars. I think it pushed the furniture purchase to the back burner for a lot of shoppers."
Fortunately, the Clunkers program ends tonight.
However, if Uncle Sam came with an incentive program for furniture purchases, Seaman said that would be a plan he could get behind.
"I think we should do something for each industry," he said.
