La Vista, NE — Gift and home décor vendor THT Designs Inc., (aka Tender Heart Treasures) was sold to Synergy4 Enterprises Inc., a new corporation headed by THT’s CFO Michele K. Quinn. Quinn, who has been with THT since 2005, serves as Synergy4’s president. Ownership was transferred on December 22.
THT Designs Inc. sold its 300,000 square-foot building and adjoining land to Yahoo! Inc. in September. After that sale, THT founder and CEO Pamela K. Watanabe-Gerdes said she would explore selling THT’s assets by year end. "I am very excited to transition THT Designs to the buyer I have chosen because she understands and embraces our business culture and will carry on the legacy that this company was founded on," Watanabe-Gerdes said in a statement. Quinn said that the transition will be seamless to the customer (except for a new address), and that the same quality products and service will continue to be offered.
The new ownership will keep the operation in the Omaha, NE area. Synergy4 will operate THT Designs from a new location at 11005 E Circle, Omaha starting in January 2009.
