You don’t have to be making millions to be featured. Today we highlight Eric Deniger, a seasoned pro, whose business is earning between $15 million and $20 million a year.
According to Eric Deniger of The Working Person’s Store in Lakeville, Indiana, “My father, who was retired, was helping a friend build a house and the friend asked him to go get a good pair of boots since it was winter and my dad was freezing. We looked at the marketplace and didn’t see anyone that was servicing working people, so I saw an opportunity to fill a need.” The Working Person’s Store specializes in brand name apparel and footwear. The site is workingperson.com.
