Welcome to our website! As we have the ability to list over one million items on our website (our selection changes all of the time), it is not feasible for a company our size to record and playback the descriptions on every item on our website.
Meet our fearless leader: Chris Gamble!
Chris is constantly looking for ways to move forward and evolve the company. He has summed up his vision for GH Brands in one simple sentence: "Furnishing lives by looking forward and giving back." Ever since establishing this goal, he has been striving to achieve it with every move the company makes!
When not working, you can find Chris spending time with his beautiful wife and three awesome kids!
Meet Frances (Fran) Short, our COO!
Fran has been with us for six years, and we don’t know what we’d do without her! She lives here in Jonesboro and when she’s not at work you’ll most likely find her playing with some sort of weapon somewhere.
A little about Fran;
She loves her dog more than anyone, even us!
"You’re weird" is her favorite compliment.
She regularly participates in Netflix marathons.
She is slightly obsessed with technology, SUPER obsessed with coffee, and her hair will probably be a different color every time you see her!
In the unfortunate event of a Zombie Apocalypse, her weapon of choice would be an army of minions. Work smarter, people. The end!
