(dba Conn's), with subsidiary companies and divisions that provide support in the areas of service, distribution, financing, insurance and other related services and has over 3,000 employees. Though Conn's has changed dramatically over the years, the customer continues to be the focus of attention and the reason for the company's continued success, and the basic values and culture of the company continue to support the contention that "the Customer is Number One."
