About Us

Imagine Retailer is a joint venture between three companies, each of whom brings a unique perspective and skill set:

Imagine Adv

Imagine Advertising & Publishing specializes in strategic marketing solutions. Founded in 1994, Imagine Advertising is a one-stop shop for advertising & marketing needs. Flora and Gregg Stopher, along with a team of award-winning designers and writers, create standout design in print, direct mail, in-store signage, television production, radio and web design. Their longstanding relationships and fine standing reputation are built on stellar creative design and amazing customer service.


If Imagine Advertising & Publishing is the beauty behind our operation, Studio98 is the brains. CEO Rafferty Pendery makes all the buttons work and works out the behind-the-scenes stuff. Studio98 designs and builds custom websites and provides search engine marketing services. While they created the complex code behind our exclusive product catalog system and shopping cart, the best part of this brainiac's machine is simplicity and statistically reliable results.

The Lively Merchant

You've got beauty, brains - and feet. As former owners of a retail store twice named one of the "Top 100 Independent Furniture Stores" by FurnitureToday, David and Amy Lively of The Lively Merchant have walked a mile or two in a retailer's shoes. They now spend their time helping independent retailers by bringing perspective, insight and objectivity to people who still have both feet in the fire.

We've been able to build Imagine Retailer together because we share a common commitment to doing what we say we're going to do, when we said, for the price we said, and maybe even better than we said. The race to be first to market with new solutions to drive your business is what gets us going, and nothing gives us a greater thrill than to hear you say, "I'll be able to spend a little more time with my kids tonight, or play an extra 9 holes, because you've helped me get my job done."
